Flirc and Daphile


Recommended Posts

I was hoping to use the Flirc USB IR receiver as a way of adding a remote into my music server setup.

I'm currently using Daphile as the platform for my server. It supports keybindings for player functions and I've tested it with a number of usb keyboards and it recognizes them all.

Daphile recognizes the Flirc USB receiver as:

"flirc.tv flirc Keyboard [usb-0000:00:13.0-1.3/input 1] "
"flirc.tv flirc Consumer Control [usb-0000:00:13.0-1.3/input 1] "
"flirc.tv flirc System Control  [usb-0000:00:13.0-1.3/input 1] "

however it won't capture key presses with any of these selected.

What's strange is I was even able to control the local UI of Daphile with Flirc and a remote with buttons mapped to arrow and enter keys....

I believe Daphile is built on Gentoo Linux.

I also tried using the Linux command line flirc_util options (enabling/disabling USB modes, etc.) but nothing seemed to change.

Any help/suggestions/other firmware or configuration recommendations would be appreciated!
