I'm trying to make my custom make infrared receiver /for remote control/ work under Linux with Lirc.
I've searched the inet quite a bit and my worries are that although Linux sees that there's "something" attached to the serial port I can't make it recognize the incoming data sent from the IR receiver. In other words people report the command
causing garbage characters to be dumped on the console whereas I don't seem to be getting anything at all.
The only good news is that after issuing the above command my IR receiver becomes alive - the LED responds to my remote control, alas without any data coming in. The receiver works fine under WinXP - I'm using girder with the Igor SFH-56 driver
Any comments, suggestions, recommendations greatly appreciated!
