I have a Creative Infra Remote. It works great in windows but i can't
get it to work with lirc. I have a dual boot installation WindowsXp
and Redhat linux.
I installed lirc with no problem ( compiled it with the creative
driver). The serial ports in linux (Redhat Fedora) are configured OK.
Checked with setserial command ( The irq and port address are set
Lirc creates his /dev's ok. No problem there.
HERE'S the strange thing. I connect with minicom to the serial port
where the receiver is attached ( with lircd stoped) and when i press a
button on the Creative Remote nothing comes on screen. BUT if i press
some button on my
TV set remote caracters start comeing. And then if i press some button
on the Creative remote caracters come up too , but only after starting
minicom i press some button on the other remote( the tv remote).
Strange. If i stop pressing buttons on any of the remotes for like 5
to 10 mins (with minicom started ofcorse), the problem comes again : i
have to first to press a button on the tv remote , otherwise nothing
comes from the Creative receiver on the serial port.
If i use irrecord on the port where the receiver is on , i get the
same. If i don't press a button on the tv remote , the receiver
doesn't react to the creative remote. And after that , when i try to
record with irrecord i get only "bad envelope" errors with the
Can some one help me pls ?
The receiver is the only thing that makes me use windows. Everything
else ( cdrw , tv-tunner , sound card , video card ) works great in
