    Pcp and Ir control

    Hello,

    I would like to add the remote control to PCP.
    Installed : Kernel Keytables, and LIRC.
    Connected and IR receiver on GPIO pin.

    And now ??? What to do exactly ??

    Sorry I'm discovering linux and founded a lot of thread (sometimes very long) but I stay lost. In my opinion some tutorials will be very welcome.

    I'm sure you think it's obvious, but if we don't know where to start it's not easy

    Thanks a lot for your help.

      I saw this thread, and don't know if the procedure is still actual because:
      dtoverlay=lirc-rpi,gpio_in_pin=27
      but the pin is defined into PCP Tweeks IR

      This section is for squeezelite ONLY. See post #2 for Jivelite configuration.
      Squeezelite is installed on my PCP but also Jivelite for the vu-meter...

      If you don't have shairport-sync enabled you also need to install
      I have installed Shairtuens2. Does it the job ?

      The lircd-jivelite config file is only for a squeezebox3, classic, or touch slimdevices/logitech remote. I've also included a lircd-jivelite-RMTD116A config file which is for a Sony RMT-D116A remote.
      Not necessary ? I'm using Pi4.

      it's a recipe where I add totally unknown ingredients, which I don't know what results to expect.

      But just founded this one more clear:
      https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...piCorePlayer-5

      I'll try it

      Thanks

        It should be just a matter of setting the GPIO on the [Tweaks] > [IR page] if you are using a Squeezebox remote.

        The major confusion with IR is there is actually 2 systems, IR in the kernel and LIRC which is alternative.

        IR is built into squeezelite and jivelite. If jivelite is installed, pCP controls it, otherwise pCP controls squeezelite.

          Ir receiver is working and I see datas.

          Code:
          # table: ??? , type: nec
          0x1012  KEY_C
          0x1011  KEY_POWER
          0x87eee20b  KEY_UP
          0x87eee20d  KEY_DOWN
          0x87eee208  KEY_LEFT
          0x87eee207  KEY_RIGHT
          0x87eee20e  KEY_P
          0x87eee202  KEY_0
          Now I should complete the keytable file. What is the name to add after table: ???

          Shoud I modify the jivelight files (it's write protect) or should I create a new one, and how to activate it ?


          Code:
          865.870047: lirc protocol(nec32): scancode = 0x87eee204 repeat
          865.870079: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0x87eee204
          865.870079: event type EV_SYN(0x00).

          What about the repeat code ?

          Thanks

            From the URL you previously posted.
            the first line contains a header with a descriptive name (you can choose that rather arbitrarily, but better avoid special characters, spaces and such) and the remote protocol to use (the type: - which is very important).
            and

            Now we need to upload the file using the piCorePlayer webgui Upload custom jivelite keytables to pCP on the IR page.

            Click Browse and choose your new keytable file, select it and click upload.

            If successful you should be able to use the remote immediately, no jivelite restart or reboot is required.
            The repeat (PERIOD) and delay are set using the ir-keytable utility. You can try different settings from the command line as the changes are immediate.

            If you want to change the defaults you can run ir-keytable from the user commands on the tweaks page.

              Reboot
              but: LIRC IR remote control is not running

              IR RC5(x/sz) protocol handler initialized but not NEC. As if the table was not downloaded correctly. Does this files has a specific extension (.xxx)?

              Tried to uninstall LIRC and reinstall, no change.
              What's wrong ?

                PcP is rebooting automatically.

                But I still get:
                Code:
                [   18.812803] Registered IR keymap rc-rc6-mce
                [   18.829030] IR RC6 protocol handler initialized
                not NEC.

                What miss I ?

                  If you're using Jivelite don't use LIRC !

                    Jivelite is intall for the vumeter view.

                    No IR control available if we are using Jivelite ?

                      IR Control of Jivelite is done by IR-Keytables NOT lirc

                        Jivelite is a controller for the Server/Player in the Squeezebox system.

                        IR-Keytables allows you to use IR remotes to control Jivelite, Jivelite then controls the system.

                        You only need lirc if you have no Jivelite

                          I guess Jivelite is used (Pcp is installed on Pi4, with LCD).

                          Where is the IR table. I would like to use an apple remote.

                          Thanks
