I've got a VIA EPIA board which is equipped with an on board FIR connector. I use the following module on that connector:
http://www.techcase.de/product_info.php?products_id=250 and the via-ircc kernel module.
First things first... Is it possible to use this and the irda project for controlling the computer with normal remote controls? Or is lirc the only thing I need
for such a usage (but as far as I know lirc doesn't support FIR)?
I was able to load the irda kernel module and the via-ircc module without problems on my 2.6.9 linux setup but also with no results. irdadump runs, but it
doesn't dump any packet (when I try to "send commands" with a remote control to the ir-sensor). In dmesg I don't see anything which could help to solve my
problems - even with enabled irda debug while loading the module.
Thank you very much for any response, help or advice.
