I've posted this in an arduino form but am not sure they can help so will post here as well.
I've build a arduino with a TSOP1138 38khz infrared receiver. It works great - I press a key and the hex value is sent out to the COM port.
When I plug this project into my suse server it detects the USB device and assigns it to /dev/ttyACM0
If I then do a
and press a key on the remote the hex value is dumped. Great stuff.
Now the trick question - how do I get it working with lirc. What driver should I use?
I've tried a few things with irw but don't seem to be getting anywhere
Does this sound even doable though? How does a normal remote receiver work? Would it do the same and echo the hex value to the com port?
