Re: [PATCH] Driver for USB Infrared Toy

It's a year later....

Hi, I was rebuilding my mythtv box which has been using lirc and the USB
Infrared Toy from dagerousprototypes.com to control mythtv very
successfully for quite some time.

But this go around I wanted to also control my TV from the USB Infrared
Toy.  (For those who may not know, the USB Infrared Toy is a PIC
(microchip.com) based IR receiver and transmitter which uses the PIC's
USB peripheral hardware to connect to your computer.)

To do this I have been chasing down what support there might already be
to help in the transmission of IR signals from the USB Infrared Toy to
my Sony TV.  I have connected the dots to this (i.e. this particular
thread I'm typing into now).  That is, to this lirc patch submission by
Peter Kooiman.

I've downloaded the Peter's patch and looked for the associated files in
the lirc GIT repository.  Specifically I looked for
"daemons/hw_usbirtoy.c" but did not find it.

I looked here:
> http://lirc.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi?p=lirc/lirc;a=tree;f=daemons;h=3a413ac0244dd6afa550aa17ff6a0f5c2da27e57;hb=HEAD

So, I assume the support to transmit IR signals using the USB Infrared
Toy PIC based dongle from dagerousprototypes.com does not exist for
Linux based Mythtv users as it is not part of the lirc.org effort?

If true, do any have an alternate suggestion?

-thanks

Usbuirt2 is a good option, as is mce based transceiver. It's usually best to stick to well used and known-to-work hardware.

Re: [PATCH] Driver for USB Infrared Toy

stuart-20

That's to bad.  I like the USB Infrared Toy as I have PIC knowledge and
thought to share a HW project where the USB Infrared Toy was the center
for all types of Mythtv features.  It strikes me that this 1 device
could be used to receive & send IR signals as well as control any number
of Liquid Crystal or Vacuum Florescent Displays.  I don't see the
microsoft product doing that.

So, to be clear ... Are you saying that the lirc command "irsend" is
believed not to work with the USB Infrared Toy?

-thanks

Re: [PATCH] Driver for USB Infrared Toy

Christ Schlacta

I'm not saying it's not supported...  but I've been on this list and using lirc for a decade, and never noticed it.
What I am saying is this:  if you stick to well tested and supported hardware, you'll have an easier time with blasting.

Hi Stuart,

I know this is a bit old, but if you are still trying to make it work (or just for future reference). The reason why you can't find the files you mention are that they are created by patches. Just get lirc

git clone git://lirc.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/lirc/lirc

copy the patch files to the lirc folder and issue these two commands:

zcat 0001-Add-driver-for-USB-Infrared-Toy-in-sample-mode.patch.gz | patch -p1
zcat 0002-Add-USB-Infrared-Toy-driver-to-setup-system.patch.gz | patch -p1

This will patch lirc and create the necessary files.

Best regards
Martin Bang Andersen
