Downloaded to /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/optional

irda-4.1.20-piCore+.tcz.md5.txt
irda-4.1.20-piCore_v7+.tcz
irda-4.1.20-piCore_v7+.tcz.md5.txt
libcofi.tcz
lirc.tcz.dep
lirc.tcz.md5.txt

I've got Shairport-sync installed so haven't addded:
libcofi.tcz
libcofi.md5.tcz

Added lirc.tcz to the end of /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/onboot.lst

Added /usr/local/sbin/lircd --device=/dev/lirc0 to UserTweaks

Added -i to the Various input field on the Squeezelite settings page.

It just doesn't seem to install? /usr/local/sbin/lircd doesn't even exist after a reboot.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks
hi spt58,

Two points that may help.

1. Double check the kernel matches 4.1.20
2. Make sure squeezelite is started after lircd (add a restart squeezelite command to User command #3.
