I managed to get my setup working. I found a config that worked in this old
mythtv post (before I subscribed)
(there's an lircd.conf dl link in there).
I added this (just cat'ed them together) to my existing
/etc/lirc/lircd.conf, and then started a second lircd daemon in
# IR blaster setup
/usr/sbin/lircd --driver=default --device=/dev/lirc1
A bit of a hack, but works along with the original init script for the lircd
for the remote. After this, irsend works fine, as does a generic channel
change script I found to use. I did have to add the freqid fields to all the
channels (used mythweb) so that the channel number was passed to my script.
Just a note, I attempted to use the "send_power_new", aka step 9 of "Steps
to Enable IR Transmitter" here:
to find the proper code, but none worked. I realize now that maybe my
transmitter was not positioned correctlywhen I was trying this, it seems to
need to be pretty close to the receiver, I have mine packing taped to the
STB, just right of the (unused) "Record" LED. Perhaps with this positioning
yours, or one of the other codes, would have succeeded. I will test if I get
a chance, recording ongoing now, apparently we are in production, even
though this is a loaner HD-PVR for now:-)
Thanks, and hope this helps others.
