I posted last night to the MythTV list about this issue I'm having with lirc
but didn't get a bite. Perhaps this is a the better bet. My apologies for
the cross post.
I'm working through the instructions at http://www.lircsetup.com in order to get my
MythTV box to be able to use a homebuilt serial transmitter and the receiver
on my PVR-350 at the same time.
Whenever I have the install line for the serial device in modprobe.conf like
install lirc_serial setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none; /sbin/modprobe
The serial device seems to work (I can do an irsend and see the LED
flashing). The big problem is however that the IR receiver on the PVR-350
stops working. As soon as I comment out the above line and reboot the 350's
receiver works fine.
The only difference I can see between my setup and that of the one mentioned
in lircsetup.com is that the versions of some of the components that I have
installed are more recent than those mentioned.
[root@... mythtv]# rpm -qa | grep lirc
The box is FC3 from Jarod's guide with the ATRPMs via apt-get.
Anyone have any idea why there would be a conflict between the two like
this? Any idea how I can track down what is going on?
