New to the list as of today.
I have an irman, and I am running gentoo.
LIRC works fine. My problem is trying to understand how the IR packet
is being decoded, and represented in the file created by irrecord.
Take a look at http://www.arcadiadreamlab.com/~redline/remote.pdf
This is the remote we have for one of our TVs. Now, so far, the
manufacturer has been putting the codes in and giving us a remote. I
would like to have a set of codes that are standard throughout the
remotes, so I have to send the codes to the manufacturer. That way we
can buy certain remotes from a vendor, and tell the TV manufacturer
what codes should be programmed into the TV.
However, when I read the codes with irrecord from the remote in that
pdf, they don't match the codes in the pdf. I know I'm not
understanding something. I am new to remotes and IR codes, and this is
a project that was given to me. Here is the output from irrecord:
one 0 0
zero 0 0
I just wanted to do the two buttons to compare. From the pdf, power
should be a "C0," and I thought the 0 infront of the 3 and the C were
the code, but mute should be a "C4."
Can someone help me, or point me in the right direction? I would
greatly appreciate it.
Is the irman decoding the packet wrong?
Should I just make a home-brew serial?
I'm really lost.
Thanks in advance.

The IRman has its own decoding algorithm which in most cases won't
output the orignal codes.

That would help.
