Typically you’ll have only one IR receiver you need to configure and the file is really simple. If it doesn’t work, there’s a script you can try that converts older lirc conf files to a newer format. The format of the keytable file is rather simple: For each decoded button press a package is made available on the socket. Press the buttons on your remote you just learned and see if they match.

If you want to disable them permanently, sudo systemctl disable lircd.

IR signals are decoded by the kernel and programs see button presses from IR remotes lircv the same way as key presses from a normal keyboard, as Linux input events. The effect of this is that you can get unwanted decodes as both lircd and the kernel will decode the IR signals.

Now a bunch of LIRC daemons will be running. Verify that the scancode to keycode mapping and the enabled protocol matches the contents of the custom keytable. While the human eye can’t see infrared signals, digital cameras and smartphone cameras can. This guide explains how to set up Kodi to understand a universal remote’s commands so not the standard MCE remotes that work out of the box.

In this case try the next file.


The most common task is sending data, but there are also other commands. 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.

LIRC is a package that allows you to decode and send infra-red signals of many but not all commonly used remote controls. The only other situation when lircd broadcasts to all clients is when it receives the SIGHUP signal and successfully re-reads its config file. Use mode2 to verify it sees the buttons With the daemons not running, a program called mode2 can verify that your device’s buttons are being seen at all.

If there’s a problem, stop lirc with. News [May ] lirc As a starter, you can use the kernel built-in support for many USB dongles and similar.

No such file or directory it means no driver is loaded. If you can’t find your remote control here it does not mean that your remote control is not supported.

What is LIRC ?

Here’s the abbreviated procedure for Stretch: This page was last edited on 17 Septemberat First test code for Fly Video 98 TV cards available.

The most important part of LIRC is the lircd daemon which decodes IR signals received by the device drivers and provides the information on a socket.

LIRC – Linux Infrared Remote Control

First stop Kodi and eventlircd lirdd we need exclusive access to the IR input device systemctl stop kodi systemctl stop eventlircd Then run ir-keytable -t. This is a well known issue see https: First test code for Hauppauge remote controls available.

Besides a remote control you also need a capture device to read the data from the remote. So, while under the hood the new scheme pircd be used, remote buttons still show up as LIRC events in Kodi. Start your text editor and open the file named Lircmap. Set up an lircd. While this new scheme is really handy, there’s a small gotcha: Several IR receivers support the raw lirc protocol and programs can get the raw, undecoded signals from the receiver.
