Hello Volumio community! I currently have a Raspberry Pi 2 with an IQaudio PiDAC running Volumio very nicely.
I’ve just rediscovered an old remote from a Sound Blaster Audigy which could make it even better and am looking for some direction as to how best to achieve this. Hoping to get some hardware and software pointers.
The remote is an RM-1500. I think it transmits at 38 kHz.
Would receivers like these work:
- Something connected to GPIO: banggood.com/5Pcs-IR-Receiv … 45168.html
- USB connected - is this simpler? banggood.com/IR-Infrared-Re … 15454.html
(My current go to tat emporium, happy to learn of other sources.)
Failing that I’m guessing this Adafruit one should and I should follow a guide like this Adafruit one?
After searching/learning a little I’ve discovered LIRC, and this remote appears to be supported.
What do I do with this knowledge? I see there’s an IR plugin, but I don’t know what to do with it.
Would the following post be helpful to follow as a rough guide/template:
I’m reasonably technically literate but my Linux beard is sparse and wispy and I find the software side of things a bit daunting. That said, I think this is a good opportunity to understand things a bit better so any help/pointers would be appreciated.
