I was wondering if anyone has come up with an easy way to use a Harmony ( or
any other IR learning remote really ) remote with lircd.
The problem with the Harmony is that you select the devices through a web
interface. I suppose I could just select something like a PVR and then use
irrecord to create a .lircrc file. That just seems to be a long way to do
Has anyone else out there already come across this problem?
I have a PVR-250 and a Harmony SST-659.
I just told harmony's site to use the programming from my Hauppauge card.
Then used that programming to program lirc.
Basically, choose ANY programming you want for the harmony remote, and then
use that programming to setup lirc.
Pretty simple, really. Just realize that since BOTH your remote and lirc
are fully programmable, you have limitless possibilities. But you have to
settle on some programming and configure both the remote and lirc
appropriately. Since lirc is FULLY customizable, while Harmony already has
the codes for everything already setup, (you can't make them up as you go)
it's just easiest to choose codes on harmony's site first, then use those
codes to setup lirc.
P.S. If this message looks as clear as mud, and you don't fully understand,
just post your new question, or email me.
