USB Infrared Toy / Re: Installing driver for USB Infrared Toy v2 windows 10
Hi

I just set up a Win10 system to compare.

Windows just recognised the IRTOy as a serial USB device.

Loaded up AnalysIR and it worked fine.

I did not load the DP driver for the toy as the standard Windows usbser seems to work.

Using AnalysIR, be sure to select the COM port first and only then select the IR Toy from the Source menu.

The source code is available to download and is open source.

So you should be able to build your own with EEPROM etc with a PIC MCU.

...other stuff might be possible directly with the board - should be covered in the docs?.

Is this a one-off project?

It will give you the timings related to each signal & you can also send a signal using the IR Toy.

However, you would need to write some code on your Win/OSX/LinuxPC, to achieve what you wrote.

Think of it as a tool, not a complete end-solution.


Out-of-the-box, I don't believe it does what you wrote in your post.

I am assuming you are on Windows

- put the toy into firmware mode by shorting the 2 pins (see docs) and powering on
- make sure the hex file (USBIRToy.v22.hex) is in the same dir as the batch file
- cd to the dir with the batch file
- run the batch file...from the command prompt
- ignore the request for COM port, by pressing return
- continue as prompted and it should be good.


This is how it works for me (based on memory).

USB Infrared Toy / Re: ir toy v2 firmware update not working plz help
It doesn't appear that you have changed directory to the location of the fw file ,unless you have it all in
C:UsersMorgan>...
As the exe ran it seems you have

I  ran thru it successfully and you can see the fw updateing with % progress.

I then tried it wiht the wrong filename and also with the IR Toy not plugged into USB and it behaved as you described.

So back to a faulty device or user error...and unfortunately I am out of ideas....

USB Infrared Toy / Re: ir toy v2 firmware update not working plz help
open a command prompt window and run the command from there.

But first make sure you change to the directory with the exe & the .hex file in it. At least then you should see what is going wrong.

And the command doesn't work in command prompt.
If this is correct, then you are likely doing something basic wrong. Try and find someone local who can help.

USB Infrared Toy / Re: ir toy v2 firmware update not working plz help
just run the command:

Quote
fw_update -e -w -v -m flash -vid 0x04D8 -pid 0xFD0B -ix USBIRToy.v22.hex

but first make sure the IR Toy is plugged in after jumpering with the LEd on.

If that doesnt work, the only thing I can think of is if you have the wrong driver installed. Maybe uninstall & re-install the correct drivers. (Verify manufacturer as DP, PID & VID as above)


After that it sounds like faulty hardware (or maybe just user error) & you should contact your supplier directly for support.

There should be a batch file in the download with the following window batch file: (update-USBIRToy.v22)

Code: [Select]
@ECHO OFF
set /P INPUT=Enter Com Port Number %=%

BootLoader.exe %INPUT%

ECHO Once the device has entered boot loader mode
pause

fw_update -e -w -v -m flash -vid 0x04D8 -pid 0xFD0B -ix USBIRToy.v22.hex
pause

Just make sure the USBIRToy.v22.hex file is in the same directory .

If you jumper and have the LED on, then just hit return when prompted for the COM port. (This is likely your mistake.)

USB Infrared Toy / Re: Searching for code examples: python IR Toy MooVee micro
[quote author="Hybrid02"]How do I put the IRToy into a mode where I can detect / display the frequency of the incoming signal?
thanks.[/quote]

It is described on the following page: http://http://dangerousprototypes.com/docs/USB_IR_Toy:_Sampling_mode


look for 0x04 Frequency report

It is essentially a command issued when in sampling mode. You issue the command only after a signal is received (or the command provides the info for the last received signal)

2 values are returned. There is a bug with the second value & unfortunately, the firmware hasnt been updated with the fix.
The first value is usually ok, as long as the remote is held close to the IRToy. (cms)

USB Infrared Toy / Re: USB issues
Maybe look at the source for IRtoy.exe and relplicate what is being done there.

Some interacations may be time critical, particularly when sending IR. I found that sending IR was the biggest challenge, so why not try just in receive mode to see can you isolate the problem a bit. Alternatively, just us with a known/working piece of software so you can eliminate the device and the PC.

I haven't played with it on Linux, but on Windows - ensuring the correct driver & firmware is installed helps.

I can't comment on having it plugged in over longer periods as I typically am plugging it in an out all the time for testing and never have it plugged in 24x7.
