(... )the tutorial has to be corrected in some places (...)

I fixed paths, and changed start_lircd.sh on mega, thanx.

For other distro you can use any other paths you needs, then you have to only fix path in start_lircd.sh.
This guide it is only example, so you can adjust it as you needs.

Hello,

I have some problem.


First, of all try:

1. /system/bin/lircd --uinput -H devinput -d /dev/input/event4 /etc/lircd/lircd.conf --pidfile=/etc/lircd/lircd.pid --output=/dev/lircd -L /etc/lircd/lircd.log
then /system/bin/irw /dev/lircd, then start pressing button on your remote.


2. If still not working download files form "debug" folder (on my mega) and replace on your Android, then
run start_lirc_debug.sh then /system/bin/irw /dev/lircd, then start pressing button on your remote.
Read log (/etc/lircd/lircd.log) and find your problem.

You should use start_lirc_debug.sh (not start_lirc.sh) and also replace lircd from mega debug folder.
Debug wersion (bin and script) uses debug level=7, so you should see more informations in log.

1. You can try use /init.rc (start_lircd.sh)
2. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=imoblife.startupmanager

Hello

I have a issue that some of you may have. After verifying that the IR module was loaded i event test it and it receives signals from a cheap remote that came with a digital picture frame. I also tested it with different remotes, Samsung TV, Grundig home cinema, MCE RC6 remotes ( from diferent brands ) and none of them are capable of send signals. I started digging and found the IR module VS 838 that is used an my orange pi pc can work in the same frequency has the MCE RC6 remotes. This leads me to conclude that the problem is related with software. I suspect that the problem is related with the module "sunxi-ir-ux.ko". Is there a different module i can use, or is the module dependent form the kernel or any other part of the operative system that doesn't allow it to be changed.

Best Regards to All
