[Solved] Install IrScrutinizer on RPi2/Raspbian Buster

Sun Dec 01, 2019 8:04 pm

Hello,
I did this project 3 years ago and it was working fine. Now with the new version I need help.
I want to setup my RPi2 as a remote control tool with IrScrutinizer http://www.hifi-remote.com/wiki/index.p ... izer_Guide
I built a board with transmitter and receiver LEDs connected to GPIO pins

I can't find a recent howto the the new software version.

I installed Raspbian with Noobs then openjdk then IrScrutinizer then lirc.
Now I need to install the driver to set the good GPIO output.
Could you help me to copy lirc_rpi.ko in the good place and tell me how to setup the gpio pins.
http://www.harctoolbox.org/lirc_rpi.html

Thank you for your help

Edit:
I can run IrScrutinizer. I can transmit a signal and see it with a webcam.
However when I try to capture (test button) I get the error message:
"HarcHardwareException: Hardware based exception: org.harctoolbox.devslashlirc.NotSupportedException Hardware does not support receiving"

So I'd guess the driver is not setup.
Any help?

I got it.
I learned that .ko files are used by the kernel.
In Raspbian they are in ib/modules/4.19.75+/kernel/ and organised in sub directories.
I found lib/modules/4.19.75+/kernel/drivers/media/rc/ where IR remote file are and I copied the lirc_rpi.ko file in.

Now it's working fine.Thank you anyway.

Return to “Raspbian”
