View Full Version : Help with Commandir II

November 21st, 2009, 06:55 PM
Can I get help with setting up my IR blaster here? I have never posted to a forum, and apologize if this is not the correct place for this post, and would appreciate being directed to where the correct place is.

I am running a new install of Mythbuntu 9.10

I have Directv, and I am hoping to control my set top box with a CommandIR II. At this time I am using one emitter and hoping to control one box.

I am using a Hauppauge pvr500.

I have the commandir installed, and I have a green light on 'A'

I am trying to get the transmitter to work, and I will worry about the receiver end of things after that.

When I run the command 'irsend send_once hauppauge 1' the prompt returns to me without error, but nothing occurs on the set top box nor the commandir (i.e. no flashing lights). When using a camera, I cannot see a flash from the emitter.

My hardware.conf is as follows
# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
#Chosen Remote Control

#Chosen IR Transmitter

#Enable lircd

#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file

#Try to load appropriate kernel modules

# Default configuration files for your hardware if any

#Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration
#If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application
#that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive
#frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER
#It will then populate all other variables without any user input
#If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure
#to leave this set to "false"

# Remote settings required by gnome-lirc-properties

# Receiver settings required by gnome-lirc-properties
RECEIVER_MODEL="Multi-IR\ Transceiver"

My lircd.conf is as follows

#This configuration has been automatically generated via
#the Ubuntu LIRC package maintainer scripts.
#It includes the default configuration for the remote and/or
#transmitter that you have selected during package installation.
#Feel free to add any custom remotes to the configuration
#via additional include directives or below the existing
#Ubuntu include directives from your selected remote and/or

#Configuration for the CommandIR Multi-IR Transceiver (userspace) remote:
include "/usr/share/lirc/extras/more_remotes/hauppauge/lircd.conf.hauppauge"

#Configuration for the Command IR : Direct TV Receiver transmitter:
include "/usr/share/lirc/extras/transmitters/directtv/general.conf"

end remote

It is the same issue with or without the 'begin remote' for the commandir section of the lircd.conf.
