RPI cleint with IR remote controller
« on: April 16, 2013, 06:49:14 »
Hi,

is it possible to connect an IR remote controller with USB to the RPI and controll the vomp client? And when must it be a special controller, and how i have to configure that?

regards

barny

Hi,

that is possible, but e.g. my libigorusb reciver don't work correct on the RPI.
If you load the uinput kernel module and start the lirc daemon with the --uinput option, you can control the vompclient by a remote that needs lirc. Your lirc configuration must generate Events of the Linux input namespace.
