Configure Serial IR Reciever

Post by jamesarbrown » Sat Aug 23, 2008 1:30 pm

Hi,

I found the details to configure the serial port in the help slightly confusing. It refers to /dev/ttyS0 which Minimyth 0.57 using lirc_serial module does not create (thats the 8250 module). It infact creates lirc0

So for typical Com Port 1 you need the following in minimyth.conf

MM_LIRC_DRIVER='lirc_serial'
MM_LIRC_DEVICE='/dev/lirc0'
MM_LIRC_KERNEL_MODULE='lirc_serial'
MM_LIRC_KERNEL_MODULE_OPTIONS='irq=4 io=0x3f8'
MM_LIRC_FETCH_LIRCD_CONF='yes'
MM_LIRC_FETCH_LIRCRC='yes'
