I am trying to get my SONY CRS60A IR remote to work with LIRC and raspberry pi 2. Here is the setup : That is what my setup looks like.
When I run mode2 -d /dev/lirc0 , I am able to read the pulses. But after running IRRECORD(and copying the generated file to /etc/lirc/lirc.d) , when I try to run IRW , and press any buttons on my remote, I get no output.
I had just randomly done this 1 day back, and it had worked then.
What is the problem ? IRSEND is able to send light (i can see from a digital camera) , but the device fails to react to it(I have pointed it directly at it, from a distance of 2 inches)
I am willing to 'reinstall' lirc , deleting all the files generated by it(if its possible, tell me how to )
