LIRC w/ audio_alsa

(1/3) > >>

mb0:
I am attempting to use an IR module with lirc via the audio input.

However, if i run;


--- Code: ---lircd --driver=audio_alsa -d hw@48000
--- End code ---
it returns

--- Code: ---Driver `audio_alsa' not supported.
--- End code ---
and lists a bunch that are.

Any suggestions on where i go from here???

Rich:
Hi mb0
Are you connecting the digital output of an IR module to an analog (mic, line, etc.) input on your computer?
That won't work.

If "bunch" includes parallel or serial, you might want to try one of those.

LIRC was compiled without 'audio' drivers support ('audio' and 'audio_alsa'). You need compile your own.

Parallel and serial were not in that list, no.

AmatCoder; i see.. you were helping me before (when i was trying to use my IRDA port), and offered

.. that would be much appreciated right now if the offer still stands?  :)

Hi AmatCoder
Yes, if you limit the voltage using a diode as shown in that link, it should be OK. If you don't, you might see zero
when you are putting in a one.
