/dev/lirc0 missing

Recommended Posts



i tried to get an infrared transmitter working, but without success. 

An /dev/lircX device is never created. I'm using an NanoPi Neo and want to use lirc.

The pwm_ir_tx/gpio_ir_tx modules are loaded but i can't see a device.


Can anyone help me?


Best regards

When i enable CIR in armbian-config. A /dev/lirc0 is created, but ir-ctrl reports the following:
Receive features /dev/lirc0:
 - Device can receive raw IR
 - Can report decoded scancodes and protocol
 - Resolution 8 microseconds
Send features /dev/lirc0:
 - Device cannot send


Has anyone a working guide to enable transmitting IR codes via lirc on armbian ?
