USB Infrared Toy firmware v22 final released

USB Infrared Toy firmware v22 final is now available for download. This includes bug fixes for both IR Toy hardware versions. This is the most stable IR Toy firmware yet.

The open source USB stack is performing well. After a little more testing on the IR Toy and Bus Pirate v4, we’ll release other USB firmwares to the new stack too. JTR has already ported the LCD backpack and Logic Sniffer.

Changelog, complete history here:

  • Fixed 48byte transmit bug, thanks JTR!
  • Fixed bug when infrared sample mode settings were used (eg custom PWM frequency)

You can get IR Toy v2 for $22.05, including world wide shipping.

  1. Ian,

    22 versions? How much work was that? How many hours did you put into that? I can’t imagine how much that cost.


  2. Don’t forget that we skiped 12 to 19. Also some were very small fixes. Think of it as more poor coding than huge investment :)

  3. Hi,
    I have just received the USB IR Toy V2 and is trying to connect it to Windows 8. Looks like there is no Windows 8 driver for it.

    Downloaded the IR Toy V2 package for V22 from your website and trying to use the drivers in the inf folder and I received the follow msg :-

    Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device
    Windows found driver software for your device encountered an error while attempting to install it.

    The hash for the file is not present in the specified catalogue file. The file is probably corrupt or has been tampered with.

    Please advise.



  4. erff… i got mixed up. Problem is of course with Win 8 only… google for installing unsigned driver x64. or use a suitable OS which i will do now :p
