A while ago I build an IR reciever following the guide on the website:
But I was still using windows back then, and I had a serial port on my computer, so using winLirc I setup everything using COM1. However I'm now on my next computer and I have linux.
I have no serial port now, but I do usefully have a usb to serial converter, so I've plugged that in, and plugged my IR reciever into the converter. However when I setup Lirc I don't know which port to select (choice of COM1 to COM4 or other)
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port
Is there a way I can set this usb to serial converter to appear as COM1? or does anyone know quite what I'm doing wrong. Thanks in advance for any help.
