Once it arrived, I set off installing it and configuring the Pi to use it. I ran into my first issue, which is the documentation seems to be out of date. The instructions ran into issues right away. Errors were encountered installing LIRC onto the Pi. Searching online, I did find the work-around is to cp /etc/lirc/lirc_options.conf.dist /etc/lirc/lirc_options.conf and then install again.
There are some modifications to configuration files to get it working, but even then, the instructions don't work. A device isn't created in /dev/ of lirc0. After more online searching, I found that the /boot/config.txt line dtoverlay= needs to have lirc-rpi changed to gpio-ir and then I can run mode 2 -d /dev/lirc0 and see results when I aim a remote at the sensor.
I recorded some signals, but I don't believe it recorded properly. This was the output recorded:
None the less, I downloaded a random remote file to see if it would transmit, but it did not.
hardware does not support sending
Error running command: Input/output error
I know it isn't the fault of the device. I am sure the hardware is working. But it is advertised as "Support LIRC software." After spending hours making various configuration changes found on different websites, I am no closer to getting this device working with LIRC.
The instructions are abit out dated so it takes a little bit of searching online to get it to work but not too much work.
I happen been able to record IR commands and also send IR to validate that the board works.
I'm still wondering what project I will use it for but it has been fun playing with it for a couple of days.
Will recommend for anyone who wants to add IR capabilities to their project with the Raspberry Pi
Using driver default on device /dev/lirc0
Trying device: /dev/lirc0
Please use the --raw option to access the device directly instead through the abstraction layer
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo mode2 -d /dev/lirc0 --raw
Using raw access on device /dev/lirc0
Problems: this device is not a LIRC kernel device (it does not
support LIRC_GET_REC_MODE ioctl). This is not necessarily a
problem, but mode2 will not work. If you are using the --raw
option you might try using without it and select a driver
instead. Otherwise, try using lircd + irw to view the decoded
data - this might very well work even if mode2 doesn't.
