Error: Hardware does not support sending LIRC Raspberry PI 3

Tue Aug 22, 2017 1:17 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to make a remote control for my Samgung TV with raspberry pi 3, and Raspbian (4.9) OS.

I was following this tutorial: https://www.hackster.io/austin-stanton/ ... irc-2fd581
But when i arrived in the 5 step, i got the error: Hardware does not support sending

I can receive commands from my remote, but i cant send for my tv.

There are some pictures of the LIRC configuration and my circuit:

File /etc/modules

Code: Select all

lirc_dev
lirc_rpi gpio_in_pin=23 gpio_out_pin=22
File /boot/config.txt

Code: Select all

dtoverlay=lirc-rpi,gpio_in_pin=23,gpio_out_pin=22
Image

Command that i used to send the signal:
irsend -d /dev/lirc0 SEND_ONCE Samsung KEY_POWER

Can anyone help me, please?

Hi,

i have the same problem with raspbian stretch. I think there is something wrong with rasbian stretch and lirc 0.9.4. IPerhaps someone has an idea what has changed with raspbian stretch or lirc 0.9.4.

Turns out that this helps:

viewtopic.php?f=28&t=192891#p1212574

according to the instruction located at "/usr/share/doc/lirc/README.Debian.gz":

Code: Select all

## 0.9.4 disruptive update
The configuration is so much changed that updating from 0.9.0 requires
manual intervention. This could be done using the update scripts or as
a completely manual process. Many users will always need some manual steps.
There is script to "convert" the configuration:

Code: Select all

sudo /usr/share/lirc/lirc-old2new.sh
after that you can reboot your pi order simply restart LIRC
