It initializes, and mode2 looks OK to me. xmode2 won't run. irrecord seems to work, but it won't learn any codes. It keeps saying "something went wrong". My existing lircd.conf doesn't work either, so something's up. I'm just not sure where to look next. The hardware seems OK with mode2 working, but could there be something off? The hardware is a Sparkfun FTDI breakout board with a 38khz IR receiver module. Just wondering if there are other places to look. The IR receiver output pin is connected to the RX pin on the FTDI chip.
