i'm having big trouble to use a VFD-IR-Combo which is built in my
HTPC-Case by Zalman:
The VFD-IR-Combo seems to be a OEM-Version of this:
OS is LinVDR, a small VDR-Linux-Distribution with Kernel 2.6.18.
This combo is connected to the system through USB. With kernel-modules
usbserial and ftdi_sio a FT232BM is recognized and could normally used
by /dev/ttyUSB0. But i didnt get it! I've tried any
lirc_*-kernel-modules without success. Either lircd is stopping
immediately after starting irw, or its running, but irw dont get any
signals from the remote. Same with mode2.
I've tried also some echo and cat to and from /dev/ttyUSB0, but no
Please, i need any help i can get ;)
