    I'm really disappointed with how the remote part works with jivelive enabled... I don't know what's going on since i'm running my pibox headless but the remote doesnt work. I have jivelite enabled, it's supposedly running, my harmony remote was programmed to work with flirc. And about a month ago when I set it up and still had pi connected to my tv to see whats going on it was working. Now I found a pair of speakers, connected them and the remote doesnt work. It's not plug&play friendly enough for my wife that needs the remote to work to switch it on/off and cycle between saved stations.

    Am I doing something wrong, should I switch to LIRC? ralphy wrote an excellent guide in post #44. It's also a bit more complicated than just enabling jivelite. But is it more foolproof and plug&play friendly once set up?

    Are you saying that you are trying to control Jivelite with a remote - but without any screen connected?

    Year. Is this not possible? I need to control the radio with a remote. Only on/off and stations selection with 1-9 buttons.

    I don't know - but with those limited functions that do not rely on real navigation then I suppose it could work.
    Are you trying to control a player that is not on this device?
    If yes - then that could be a problem if Jivelite has switched to a different player.

    Can you reconnect a screen to watch what is happening?

    Squeezelite can be controlled with ir without jivelite being installed.

    The jivelite IR tools extension are from of the v4l (video for linux) tools so you might be able to find more details on their site
    Not sure about 1:1 transmit, but the "blst" frame is a noop in both squeezelite and jivelite if I remember my research correctly (it's been some time).

    By using the metod you descirbed on Page 6?

    I can says that now pcp works with flicr and a remote. I borrowed a hdmi cable before but bought one now so I can test any time I want. Connected and rebooted. Jivelite started as it should and everything works. I don't know what didn't work when I had no video.

    I have also mapped keys 1 through 9 to pick stations from favourites but I can only pick two. The one set at nr 1 and the one set at nr 3. Any idea what would the player skip station 2 and not play anything beyond station 3? All the stations are playable via browser. Jivelite just shakes when i pick a station that isn't 1 or.3.

    IR blasting with Jivelite

    Hi there again - thanks for the tips Ralphy, but i'm not sure i fully understood them ?!

    Anyway, having messed around far too much with LIRC - trying to somehow disable the receive function, whilst exploiting transmit (didn't work in the end, i could either have only Rx with IR-tools, or only Tx with LIRC) - and then i discovered ir-ctl !

    So, ir-ctl is part of the ir-tools package and will allow me to transmit, whilst receive continues to work as is!

    ir-ctl -f gives me this:
    Receive features /dev/lirc0:
    - Device cannot receive
    Send features /dev/lirc0:
    - Device can send raw IR
    - IR scancode encoder
    - Set carrier
    - Set duty cycle
    So this makes sense i guess as receive is already busy via jivelite.

    and indeed, the following will send a key code and make the IR LED flash: sudo ir-ctl -S rc6_0:0xA45B

    However, this wont turn my NAD amp on !! - whereas the licrc equivalent: irsend SEND_ONCE NAD_SR6 KEY_POWER does indeed work.

    Below is the first part of the LIRC config file i am using for my amp - and i assumed if i could guess the correct protocol (which is the function of the first part of the lirc.conf file right ?!) then all i need to send would be the key code and possibly the pre_data 0xE13E beforehand (which i think identifies the make and model). But i cant find / guess whcih IR protocol the NAD is using and also i cant get any to work with the 4 hex numbers 0xE13EA45B

    So, the two questions I have are: Am i barking up the right tree or completely not ? / and does anyone have a clue which IR protocol NAD use ??

    If you are creating a keytable file for a new remote, you can refer to my Jivelite action to key symbol spreadsheet to help identify the jive action to key symbol mapping needed.
    Thanks you for posting this -- I now have the official Sleep button working on my pCP 6.x setup thanks to the info you provided showing me how to remap 0x6e1d as KEY_S :-)

    Re IR blasting with Jivelite

    A quick update on this - it is now all working nicely - i used ir-ctl.

    Since the info i needed was spread all around i made this new thread below to save it for posterity!
