I had to modify some scripts to make it work, so I wanted to post my findings here such that it might help others. I’ll have another close look at the datasheets tomorrow, but I’m pretty sure the only difference was luminosity and the angle. When restarting the lirc service, the lircd instance will now be aware of the remote file. AHPG-A devices being controlled by this remote: Ah well, I’ve got other projects I can work on in the meantime, I’ll post back in here when I’ve made more progress. The software is a work in progress, but [Albert] already has a driver that connects to LIRC , which lets you control a wide array of remote devices and a test program for carrier generation.

Lirc_USB-UIRT – Community Help Wiki

You must use the GPIO pin you specify when loading the module. No output from irw. Some things that I’ve noticed that seem weird: Check dmesg to make sure it was detected and that the tty was created.: Then, I tried the following: This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

Also, both pick up the transmissions of the other when I send with one and listen with the other: The voltage levels and current appear to be the ftci.


Based on the hardware. However I expect most that find this will first need to jump to the bottom and figure out the config scripts.

FTDI driver.

Board index All times are UTC. Restarting the lirc service with the new configuration, and issuing another listing of the running processes there are now ftci instances of lircd.

To answer your last question: No need for patching and building LIRC manually. The last thing is that BC is not quite up for the task.

Like sunlight or other IR sources that pollutes your commands. I love FTDI for making such a flexible chip cheap and abundant. I think you can draw somthing like a couple of hundred milliamps before the polyfuse kicks in.


If you can use mode2 which connects directly to the device then lircd must not be running, but maybe you kill before running mode2? Email required Address never made public.

USB Serial Driver core [ You can try firing off lirc like this. It also failed with 1 repeat. Using mode2, both pick up pulses and spaces when I point the remote at them and press a button.


Bitbang IR Remote

The debconf configuration options allow for the selection of the FTDI type of receiver device: Here’s the basic steps I took ftddi get where I am, then my config files. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: If not then most likely your config scripts are ctdi.

The one I ended up using was BC, which when I lrc at the datasheet pdfs, didn’t seem altogether different from the BC See Ubuntu documentation for more information on enabling these repositories. Maybe you can measure the resistance between gnd on the loose cable and gnd on the pi, just make sure power is off when doing it.

That’s way over what the GPIO pins are able to supply.

Select all dmesg grep ftdi [ 6. Notify me of new posts via email. In my case I’m good to move onto the next step, transmitting.
