Usage with inputlircd (Obsoleted)
anyRemote can be used with inputlircd package
This feature was tested on IR remote RM-F7 and IR receiver supplied with Aver Media Studio 507 Tv tuner card.
To use anyRemote with IR remotes it needs to:
- install inputlircd package. It's' available in download area. You do not have to install LIRC.
- run inputlircd like:
inputlircd -d /tmp/some_name -gf -u `whoami` \ -m 0 /dev/input/eventXbeware, /dev/input/eventX should be readable by the user.
- run anyRemote with "-s ilirc:/tmp/some_name" parameter. It suggested to use AT-mode configurational files.
anyremote -f /path/to/cfg/file -s ilirc:/tmp/some_name
How to determine appropriate /dev/input/eventX for inputlircd
Run the following command:
ls -l /dev/input/by-path/|grep ir
and it will prints something like:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Dec 2 21:25 pci-0000:01:05.0--event-ir -> ../event6
anyRemote and LIRC
It seems there is no practical sence in this, but anyRemote could be configured to work with LIRC.
