Drivers for devices that are usually sold together with a remote usually install their own keytable – so that eg the Hauppauge remote that came with a Hauppauge DVB stick works out of the box. Jarod Wilson is taking over. These may appear just after you have sent a command to lircd, so you have to make sure you don’t confuse them with replies. Show pagesource Old revisions Backlinks. So now that you configured lirc and irw gives the expected output, it’s time to let lirc talk to Kodi. Typically you’ll have only one IR receiver you need to configure and the file is really simple. If your remote uses a protocol that is not supported by the IR receiver or some non-standard protocol that isn’t supported by the Linux kernel at all your only chance to get it working is if the IR receiver driver supports the raw lirc protocol, then you can use userspace LIRC with a custom lircd.

Each command is a single printable line, terminated with a newline. If you use other keycodes you’ll have to create a Kodi lircmap.

It also accepts commands for IR signals to be sent if the hardware supports this. There’s apparently a bug in the irrecord in stretch that makes it generate a file that doesn’t work. The default configuration in LibreELEC is changed slightly compared to the official ir-keytable configuration:. I have made a 0. First, run ir-keytable to find out which protocols your IR receiver driver supports – look at the Supported protocols: If IR receptions works you lircc see a lot of pulse and space lines lirce you press a button.


As a starter, you can use the kernel built-in support for many USB dongles and similar. Those instructions have a couple of extra steps involving module loading that it turned out I didn’t need, and on the other hand it doesn’t address the problems I saw with irrecord.

lircd (8) – Linux Man Pages

This should fix incompatibilities with 2. It’s a plain text file, the first line contains a header with a descriptive name you can choose that rather arbitrarily, but better avoid special characters, spaces and such and the remote protocol to use the type: Navigation menu Personal tools Log in Request account. Run ir-keytable -r to show the currently used keytable and protocol.

If you have a working lirc setup from a Jessie machine, try it first. Either way, you should get an lirc. Show pagesource Old revisions Backlinks.

Using this socket they will get the infrared codes received by lircd and they can send commands to lircd. You might be able to edit the one from irrecord to make it work.

Some IR receivers can’t be configured at all and you can only use the remote they came with. You don’t want them while you’re configuring, and if you’re eventually going to be lirvd button presses from Python, you don’t want them at all. Besides a remote control you also need a capture device to read the data from the remote. You will lkrcd need the proper config file from CVS. This issue might happen intermittent across reboots, there’s also a chance lircd runs after ir-keytable and in-kernel decoding is disabled.


So now that you configured lirc and irw gives the expected output, it’s time to let lirc talk to Kodi.

The most common task is sending data, but there are also other commands. Supported capture devices Besides a remote control you also lircr a capture device to read the data from the remote. You can see this as a motivation for you to work on support for IrDA compliant hardware as I don’t have the time to do it myself.

So, while under the hood the new scheme can be used, remote buttons still show up as LIRC events in Kodi. It turns out several things have changed under Raspbian Stretch.

LIRC – Linux Infrared Remote Control

Receiving of IR signals was also possible but has some limitations. Once you get irw working, you’re home free. Lircf the abbreviated procedure for Stretch: Creating a custom lircd. Although lircd disables all remote protocols on startup and thus disables in-kernel decodingir-keytable auto-configuration which is run in parallel can interfere with that and re-enable in-kernel decoding – if it happens to run after lircd.

In case you hit problems beyond what I saw, I found this discussion useful, which links to a complete GitHub lrcd of instructions for setting up lirc on Stretch.
