I've just started dabbling with my RPi (model B) and I want to send the IR codes that I've captured using an IR-Receiver with lirc - irrecord application.
The creation of the configuration file has been completed successfully.
I can verify this, because when I run this:
irsend LIST philips ""
I get the list of the keys I've captured.
The problem is that I don't know much about electronics, so I am not sure I've set up correctly the transmitter.
I've tried this schematic for the transmitter, and made the IR led "look" towards the device (or even my receiver) and couldn't get any results.
I've also tried this schematic (without the R2 resistance - it is said at the post, that he omitted it), and had no results.
Do you have any possible ways to troubleshoot this?
Also, this is the config file that was created with irrecord:
begin remote name philips bits 13 flags RC5|CONST_LENGTH eps 30 aeps 100 one 885 879 zero 885 879 plead 892 gap 113079 toggle_bit_mask 0x0 begin codes KEY_POWER 0x1D4C 0x154C KEY_VOLUMEUP 0x1C10 KEY_VOLUMEDOWN 0x1411 KEY_TUNER 0x1C7F KEY_NEXT 0x1C60 0x1460 KEY_PREVIOUS 0x1461 KEY_MUTE 0x140D end codes end remote
This is the output of
irsend LIST philips "":
irsend: 0000000000001d4c KEY_POWER irsend: 0000000000001c10 KEY_VOLUMEUP irsend: 0000000000001411 KEY_VOLUMEDOWN irsend: 0000000000001c7f KEY_TUNER irsend: 0000000000001c60 KEY_NEXT irsend: 0000000000001461 KEY_PREVIOUS irsend: 000000000000140d KEY_MUTE
I am using this
irsend SEND_ONCE philips KEY_POWER and get no results.
