Bought my first pi (pi 3 - Model B )last week and an IR reciever, thought as a first project I would have it send IR codes to my tv using
irsend (plan is to then create nodejs app and have it integrate with alexa). Anyway I have set everything up the way I believe is correct but when using the command
irsend SEND_ONCE MY_REMOTE_CONTROL KEY_POWER for example nothing happens. I have gone through the whole process of recording the remote, creating the relevant config files etc.
mode2 -d /dev/lirc0 I can see output in my terminal like
space 16300 pulse 95 space 28794 pulse 80 space 19395
irsend LIST MY_REMOTE_CONTROL "" even returns following for example
irsend: 000000000000c837 KEY_POWER
I was just wondering if anyone has had this problem in the past and how they went about fixing it
This is my config is setup
# Added this dtoverlay=lirc-rpi,gpio_out_pin=17,gpio_in_pin=18
lirc_dev lirc_rpi gpio_in_pin=18 gpio_out_pin=17
LIRCD_ARGS="–uinput –listen" DRIVER="default" DEVICE="/dev/lirc0" MODULES="lirc_rpi"
I have also run the following to make sure everything is up to date
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo rpi-update
If anyone has any suggestions or troubleshooting ideas then please advise, any help appreciated
