I have bought an infrared receiver. Don't know which brand it is.
I can't get it to run under debian/linux with lirc, under winxp with
winLirc there is no problem.
Following i tried:
- install the c't vdr distribution with lirc support
- get the lirc packages from debian (with kernel compile)
- get the sourcecode from lirc homepage and compiles by myself (with
All doesn't work.
I have no problem to compile the kernelmodule. There is also no problem
to load this module (with "setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none" and so on)
My settings with winLirc are:
Port = com2
Speed = 115200
Receiver type = RX device
(Rest = default)
What is to do, to get it run with linux?
Please help, i have spend too much time with this up to now.
Btw: Is it allowed to post a screenshot (for better understanding) of my
winLirc settings (30KB) in this list?

I didn't know that anyone was selling a receiver like this that worked
with WinLIRC, but the RX type device is not supported by LIRC. It's not
compatible with the standard LIRC configuration files, because it can't
detect pulses, and must use a virtual pulse in WinLIRC. The LIRC code could
be modified in the same way that WinLIRC was modified (to add a virtual
pulse and detect changes on the RX pin rather than DCD), but the not
standard configuration files (all pulses are the same length) creates a
