hi

i have a irman/uir compatible device that work in a com port.
winlirc now supports this type of devices but not work correctly because the com port models requires a signal in rts/dtr pin. (enabled for powering rts/dts)
is possible add this option?
thx

    Hi,
    what exactly is this hardware ? And do you have some developer documentation for it which might help me. I don't own a real IRMan device. I only tested the plugin using the IRToy which has an IRMan mode.

    this devices use the same protocol of irman (IR/OK) but is powering by rts/dtr.

    I see, without the hardware it's kind of hard for me to test. If you donate me a receiver, I'll make it work. You can always have it back again :)

    I have the IRToy which is probably sufficient. The problem was it's a USB device and not a serial one, so I had no idea it needed power on those 2 pins :p If you want to contribute, give winlirc a positive thumbs up on the main page, or donate something. Either would make me happy :) Glad to have helped.
