I am having trouble getting my motherboard IRDA header to work with
lirc-0.7.0, I have constructed an IRDA header using the jaycar kit
mentioned below. I know the header works using serial as when I connect
minicom to it and point a remote at it I get data. I can also transmit,
I used a handycam in nightvision mode to watch keypresses.
I built lirc with the following options... --enable-debug
--with-transceiver --with-driver=serial --with-port=0x3f8 --with-irq=4
I load the serial module with 'modprobe lirc_serial' and the kernel sets
up a device /dev/lirc/0 ( i use devfs )
I start lircd as '/usr/sbin/lircd -d /dev/lirc/0 -n ' and this connects
to the irda header fine.
If I do 'irrecord -d /dev/lirc/0 myremote' with and without lircd
running I get nothing, if I start lircd and do irw I get nothing.
Does anone have any ideas as to where I could look or what I could try to
get this working ?
Thanks in advance
OK... Some info about my setup...
