How I installed lirc with IR receiver and remote to Volumio

Hello

I've got problem with IR receiver on Cubietruck (Volumio 1.4).
After lirc installation I have following massage :

Code: Select all
No valid /etc/lirc/lircd.conf has been found..
Remote control support has been disabled..
Reconfigure LIRC or manually replace /etc/lirc/lircd.conf to enable..


I tried to change lircd.conf file, but no effect. Of course I tried before:
Code: Select all
irrecord -n -d /dev/lirc0 ~/lircd.conf

but Cubietruck IR receiver doesn't see any signals from remote (IR remote - NEC system).

What to do with it?
Does anybody configured lirc on Cubietruck?

Hi,


I want basic control using IR remont control in WiFi-free volumio
I solder TSOP4838 in I2C and 3,3V as on photo
Is this correct? how to start it in system if on i2C will be two devices?

Thanks to your information i managed to install an ener314-ir on my raspberry. See also https://volumio.org/forum/rpi-with-hifiberry-dac-and-ener314-t4162.html and userguide at https://energenie4u.co.uk/res/pdfs/ENER314-IR_User_guide_V3.pdf
I use the volumio.sh script https://github.com/volumio/Volumio2/blob/master/app/plugins/system_controller/volumio_command_line_client/volumio.sh to control volumio from lircrc. Tried to play option too, but it takes quite a long time to react, so I used mpc play instead. I use the ir-transmitter to control my Micromega MyAMP. To start spotify connect with your remote, the python Mr Sponti's python script https://volumio.org/forum/spotify-connect-t2811-100.html is very usefull!

Next step would be to get the lirc_web mentioned in https://volumio.org/forum/volumio2-adding-another-node-app-t4360.html running. Would be nice to get the volumio's volume control the volume of my amp directly and add an extra button to switch it of.
Did anyone try the node-lirc https://www.npmjs.com/package/node-lirc?

HI all

Is it possible to use with Tsop4838 IR receiver on top of pHAT DAC? This DAC uses all I2S pins https://pinout.xyz/pinout/phat_dac
If yes, then is there any additional configuration required?
Cheers

Tomasz

I2C != I2S

It may be true, but how does this answer my question?

Sorry, assumed you were mixing up the two given your "This DAC uses all I2S pins" comment.

Either way, IR works with most GPIOs, as it's just a pulse stream that is read. So it's just a matter of telling lirc which GPIO you are using by setting the corresponding dt overlay parameters:
Code: Select all
    dtoverlay=lirc-rpi,gpio_out_pin=17,gpio_in_pin=13


Good luck!

First of all, thanks for helping :)

I am just wondering if I correctly understand this pinout description below

does it mean that I don't need to specify gpio_in_pin like you did above? Is my config below ok? There's no input pin for the receiver ;)

Code: Select all
    dtoverlay=lirc-rpi,gpio_out_pin=17


And by the way: initial post by birca1987 does not contain anything about dtoverlay pin assignment changes, so I wonder how did it work (lirc-rpi default config??)

Thanks again!
(I've never did anything like this with RPi, so pls. excuse my ignorance)
