I've seen a fair bit around saying how much people like the Tivo
"peanut" remote, and that folks were successful in getting their
Tivo-style remote to work with Myth. I have to agree.. and I like it,
I guess I have to ask.. how does one really go about (1) finding a good
serial IR Receiver (buying one, not making one), and, (2) what's the
right process for setting it up? Do you just run irrecord /tmp/filename?
I've got a hand-me-down serial IR receiver that my brother-in-law gave
me about 2 yrs ago. I don't even know if the thing works, but I
thought I would give it a try. Is there a way to tell if the system
(FC5) even sees the IR receiver?
lirc_dev: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.
lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, at major 61
lirc_serial: auto-detected active high receiver
lirc_dev: lirc_register_plugin: sample_rate: 0
modprobe.conf (from wilsonet.com):
alias char-major-61 lirc_serial
options lirc_serial irq=4 io=0x3f8
install lirc_serial /bin/setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none ; /sbin/modprobe
