Hi there, just got my home-brew irman built, works great and fits in an
old film canister with a few strategically placed holes! The breakout-box
came in handy as always.. The xmms plugin needs me to feed it a 'echo IR >
/dev/ttyS0' for it to init though, which is weird as it sets the RTS/DTR
properly, but a little script to ping that out a few seconds after xmms
starts does the trick.
Anyhow, if it's worth anything, here are the control codes it puts out as
it wasn't listed in the driver database..
(I take it that since the remote passes through the irman, it won't be of
much use for the direct to serial port flavors, but thought I'd share)
# codes for Sony RM-DM11 Remote Control (D-828K Car Discman)
bind sony-cd-play d7f7d7f7d7f7
bind sony-cd-stop 1df71df71df7
bind sony-cd-prev 0df600000000
bind sony-cd-next 8df78df78df6
bind sony-cd-fwd 2df72df72df7
bind sony-cd-rew cdf7cdf7cdf7
bind sony-cd-surround 1bf71bf71bf7
bind sony-cd-dsigproc bbf7bbf7bbf7
bind sony-cd-vol+ 49f600000000
bind sony-cd-vol- c9f7c9f7c9f7
note: 'fwd' and 'rew' are accessed by holding down 'prev' and 'next' a bit
longer. dsigproc is Digital Signal Processing, ie Bass Boost, Bass Boost+,
Vocal, Car eq. mode button.
when learning these codes, I noticed that while some buttons (eg Play)
were rock solid, some of the other button's (eg Vol-) return codes
fluctuated quite a bit, and only hit the 'correct' code about 60% of the
=> is this normal? I assume it's just too close to the edge of a threshold
and sometimes falls one way, and sometimes the other, and not a snafu with
resistor values etc. ? I should deflux my board I suppose. Cable is only 1
meter long, so I didn't bother tying down the shielding.
==> It seems to always fall on either one of three different values. Can I
just make three entries in the irman.conf/lircd.conf file binding the same
'event' to the three diff't raw codes to cover all possibilities? or will
this make lirc choke?

There won't be any problems with lircd and the Irman. With other hardware
you won't be able to send some codes but that's not relevant for the Irman
