Description

LIRC is a package that supports receiving and sending IR signals of IR remote controls, adding functionality and flexibility to the basic support in the Linux kernel. Support for LIRC is ubiquitous in Linux HTPC applications; it's also packaged in all major Linux distributions.

Despite it's name, LIRC also works on OSX.

    Well, I stumbled on LIRC when I acquired and odroidc1 SBC from hardkernel, which has an integrated IR-receiver. Since I have quite some remotes accumulated, I thought I give it a try. Although I ran into some odd problems to start with, it works now as expected for me. A big "Thank You" and "thumbs up" goes to Alec Leamas, who is definitely the most helpful and effective maintainer I know of. Keep up the good work, Alec !

    This is a vastly overrated project. Designed in the early nineties, almost all vital parts suffer from fundamentally bad design. (Just as example: Sending a raw signal with "arbitrary" intro sequence and another sequence as repeat sequence is something Lirc cannot do.) I severely doubt that someone today (original developers are no longer active) understands the core code. Much has happened to out understanding of IR signals since the early nineties, but the legacy code of Lirc remains the same.

    This is a great project. It takes a bit to wrap around all the parts but it works very well. The serial hardware works great.

    The best and most universal infrared remote sofware you can find in the world.
