Re: lircd.conf working flawlessly on jessie utterly fails on buster

Your remote file doesn't look exactly like mine, but it doesn't look like a normal RC6 file either. One of my remotes requires RAW mode to transmit and I found with 4.19 that gpio-ir-tx would not send my known good codes. Eventually I found a post to try pwm-ir-tx and all of my raw codes transmitted...

Re: [Stretch/Buster] Using LIRC with kernel 4.19.X and gpio-ir

@martyndwheeler I too have been having nothing but trouble since the kernel 4.19 upgrade with remotes for my heaters. It worked so easily with previous versions I thought they were just standard remotes. As I've lost hours troubleshooting this over the last year, I've come to realize that they aren'...

Re: ir-keytable not working on RPi3/Buster

So I found out a bit more. I had both an IR transmitter and receiver on GPIO so I needed to make sure that I specified the receiver when trying to use testing mode ir-keytable -s rc1 -t That let it actually start listening but I still got nothing from my 2 different fireplace remotes. I dug out a Me...

Re: ir-keytable not working on RPi3/Buster

I'm having the same problems with Buster with kernel 4.19 on a Rpi Zero W using a VS1838B receiver. I can't get it to see anything from ir-keytable but with mode2 when I have lirc installed it is seeing it. Even after patching lirc to work with 4.19, I can't record anything and using the same remote...

@Snerler

This is how mine configures by default with one receiver and one transmitter

Re: Raspbian Buster and LIRC

Does anyone know if copying the .conf.dist to .conf is an permanent step or just a bug that will be resolved? The "apt install lirc" fails halfway through but copying two files like this and then trying to install it again does allow it to complete as mentioned in this thread. It was not required in...

lirc on Raspberry Pi Zero W with gpio-ir

I used the guide found here to setup a RPi Zero W with a VS/1838B receiver and IR LED emitter with lirc-0.9.4c https://www.instructables.com/id/Amazon-Echo-Controlled-IR-Remote/ Using Stretch with kernel 4.14 and dtoverlay=lirc-rpi,gpio_in_pin=23,gpio_out_pin=22 along with driver=default, everything...

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

I believe lirc_rpi is no longer recommended and gpio-ir should be used instead. Some info here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=205415 Thank you for this. I was really confused when my /dev/lirc0 disappeared after upgrading. Switching to gpio-ir and gpio-ir-tx got me somewhat bac...
