Re: LIRC GPIO driver for homebrew adapter

thanks for the response I hadn't even thought about doing qa search for the ko file to see if there were any others in the system

if I figure it out I will let you know.

Thanks,

Re: LIRC GPIO driver for homebrew adapter

ok I will more than likely get flamed for this but I have to ask why is it like pulling teeth to get any help with something that I assume is rather simple if you know what you are doing.

Re: LIRC GPIO driver for homebrew adapter

ok I found my kernel issue but I am at a loss at how to fix it. Everytime i put the the lirc_rpi.ko int he rc folder it is erased after I reboot. Sorry I am new with dealing with kernels

Re: LIRC GPIO driver for homebrew adapter

I went ahead and updated the kernal to 28+ but I still get failed on lirc starting on kernel modules and kernel modules in hardware.conf

Re: LIRC GPIO driver for homebrew adapter

ok turns out I had the files in the wrong plce now I get failed on lirc start however I am on kernel 3.10.25+ can I simply upgrade to 3.10.28+ to solve the problem it did I need to attempt to compile it on my pi?

Re: LIRC GPIO driver for homebrew adapter

ok thanks I get no errors other than irsend telling me that it doesn't support multiple transmitters so I guess I am back to reading

Re: LIRC GPIO driver for homebrew adapter

hey question I have the file in and am waiting to see if it works after rebooting but just for good measure which pin numbers does it use bcm, board, or wiringpi?

Re: automatic garden beds

well I am not an expert but I can tell you from doing some basic switched based projects for similar purposes it is going to take one heck of a lift system just to raise and lower the beds due to the weight.

Re: IR emitters

ok I checked my code as best I can tell I have it configured correctly here is I what I have in modules based on the GPIO diagram I have the led I am testing with on GPIO17

lirc_dev
lirc_rpi gpio_in_pin=23 gpio_out_pin=17

Re: IR emitters

Ok by no reaction I mean that if I use webpio and turn on the pin the red led I am using for testing comes on. If I use irsend and tell it to say send power I get no blink/from the led.

Re: IR emitters

well power came back on and I found my issue I had not soldered the collector pin on the transistor so now that I feel totally stupid I just have to figure out why I get no reaction from the led when it comes on fine if I manually turn on the gpio pin.

Re: IR emitters

ok lets see if I can write this up so it makes sense here is what I have I have a 5v source to drive the led feeding through a 220ohm resistor network IC connected to the collector port on the 2n3904 transistor the emitter leg is tied to ground and the base is connected to a 1k resister on the 3.3v ...

Re: IR emitters

ok dumb question here I got it done however I am assuming I used to high of a resister on the base I used 1k 5%(what I had on hand) resister on the base which is fed to the GPIO pin and on the collector pin I used a 220ohm resister and I am unable to get any reaction from a led I am using a regular ...

Re: IR emitters

hey question on the IR emitters can I pull the power from the 5v GPIO pin to run through the resister I plan to be limiting the current to each LED down to around 10ma as the spec sheet on the stick on emitters says 10ma. so I was trying to figure if I could safely pull the power from the 5v pin or ...

Thanks for the quick reply I found the
C file but I have to be stupid now how do I compile it and so I install the normal LIRC first?

Re: LIRC GPIO driver for homebrew adapter

I am sure this has came up but I missed it is it possible to have say 2 it emitters on 2 GPO pins and send them seperate codes? I have 4 devices I wish to control but 2 are the same model and I don't want to send them the same commands every time.

Thanks,
Yonu

Re: IR emitters

does anyone know if it is possible to setup LIRC on the Pi to that you can have multiple emitters with separate codes so that you don't have to send all the codes to every device?

Re: IR emitters

Thanks I will have a look.
The emitters were already in place I from the ok AMX system that dyed a while back so I figure I may as well use them.

ok I was not sure where to put this so I figured I would post it in off topic I am looking at driving 6 IR LEDs using LIRC to turn several video screens on and off. and I already have IR emitters affixed to the screens so what I need to know so I don't blow anything is do they connect to the Pi GPIO...

Re: multiple GPIO triggering issue

anychance I can get a bit of help on these optocouplers turns out the ones I have are fine but it appears they have to have to sink current in order to work as best I can tell I pulled one of them and wired an old x10 ds10 door transmitter to the collector and emitters and it will trigger it when po...
