Before I go out and buy a second IR receiver I thought I'd ask whether anyone knows how I could share a single IR receiver between two machines. I thought this might be fairly trivial if lircd or irxevent supported accessing a /dev/lircd over a network, but not only can't I find any doc on how to do this, I can't even find anyone else who has asked how to do this! :-)
So...is it possible to attach and IR receiver to one machine and use lircd or a client to access it remotely. The end result I'm looking for is irxevent on two different machines seeing the same infrared signals without adding more hardware.
