Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?



Did you try to use it under Armbian desktop?

Yes :-) ......

This pilot work on Linux ...
but on the router ..... and after the command irw showing the appropriate entries ! ? 
This pilot work on Linux ...but on the router with alternative firmware Tomato ..... and after the command irw
showing the appropriate entries ! ?
I read somewhere that the standard drivers are bad: ati_remote ?
You can read more ... but in the Polish forum    :

Since this device is detected as an input device, you have to create a devinput based LIRC config for it.

Default config shipped with Armbian is designed to work with onboard IR receiver (or receiver connected to a dedicated pin on the pin header), so irw won't give you any output with your device.

Unfortunately this

I'm not too good at linux :-(

will be your main problem, since in order to get ti to work, you need to create

  • An udev rule to create a permanent symlink for your device
  • a LIRC hardware config to point at your input device and to use the devinput node
  • a LIRC remote config defining button codes

So you are saying this is a combo device, wireless and IR and you want to communicate with an Orane PI Lite on board IR sensor?
Not the pilot has its own sensor
Unfortunately, unless you have to compile drivers :-(
It's fun because you can control through the wall
armbian system does not work even command: sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc  ( I can not install : lirc-modules-source )
rather, I have to use another remote control
Ps. remote control works with a dedicated sensor !... but
on another system ( beta ).....Armbian-5.25-Orangepilite-Ubuntu-xenial-3.4.113-desktop 
start-up procedure is simple:
apt-get install lirc
# reconfigure lirc
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc
Remote control configuration: ATI/NVidia/X10 RF Remote (userspace)
IR transmitter, if present: None !!!
configuration file lircd.conf here : 
I ran up to two remotes simultaneously with the program mpc mpd ( internetradio )

I use now : ARMBIAN Debian GNU / Linux 8 (jessie) 3.4.112-sun8i ... It works a little better than xenial 3.4.113

I question whether you can in the future to add

lirc with properly working option : dpkg-reconfigure lirc

with a choice of drivers ?
