View Full Version : Any one in for Infrared reciever and remote syncing program? LIRC Alt

April 20th, 2010, 05:58 AM
My receiver is ma620 and doesn't works as lirc device, however I can "cat /dev/ttyUSB0" on it and read pulses when i press something on remote in line with receiver.

I wrote a simple app that opens as file the receiver serial device, (dev/ttyUSB0) and whenever pulses come it changes the song in rythmbox.

Is anyone interested? I will take this app further but two or three guys working will definitely get it done faster and make it more cooler.

Of course I know LIRC is best, it does huge things, but the problem is that its hard to configure, not many devices supported, etc.

Please let me know what are your views, thanks
