Hello,


I have some problems using an USB IR Blaster with the ftdi driver of Lirc.


Here is my system config :

- Linux NeoLex 3.8.0-19-generic #30-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 1 16:36:13 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux


To install my device I have followed this site : http://www.huitsing.nl/irftdi/


I have compiled and installed Lirc with the FTDI driver.

And I have configured it with a lircd.conf that I know it works. 


I got the informations of my device by :

udevadm info -q all -n /dev/ttyUSB0

P: /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:10.4/usb1/1-2/1-2.2/1-2.2:1.0/ttyUSB0/tty/ttyUSB0

Then I have launched Lirc with this configuration :


sudo lircd -H ftdi -d serial=FTF5X8SP -n

 

Until here all is all right.


Now I tri to send some orders by :


irsend send_once remote_DVD KEY_OPEN (cf. lircd.conf attached)


Here is what I see in lircd messages :


lircd: WARNING: you should specify a valid gap value

lircd: lircd(ftdi) ready, using /var/run/lirc/lircd

lircd: accepted new client on /var/run/lirc/lircd

lircd: Initializing FTDI: serial=FTF5X8SP

lircd: hwftdi_send() carrier=38000Hz f_sample=524288Hz 

lircd: opened FTDI device 'serial=FTF5X8SP' OK

lircd: removed client


So, there is no error and the order seems to be sent.

However nothing happen.


May someone can help me on this issue.


Regards,



Julien
