USB Infrared Toy receive/transmit support for LIRC (Linux)

Posted on Friday, September 2nd, 2011 in Infrared toy by Ian

LIRC is a remote control decoder/transmitter program for Linux. The IR Toy has always been supported by LIRC’s IRman-compatable mode, but now there’s a patch for full receive and transmit support. Peter posted the test IR Toy LIRC driver in the forum:

I have finished work on a lirc driver for linux that supports receive and transmit in ir sample mode. I have just submitted the patch here.  Tested with irw, irrecord and irsend, working fine in my setup, ymmv.

The patch is available in the LIRC mailing list archive at SourceForge. Any testing reports would be appreciated.

    Thanks to the author. For testing i have to wait until the toy is on stock again.

    Sourceforge apparently broke the link to the patch, but I found it here. If you use Gentoo, you can use Gianni Ceccarelli’s overlay, see here.
