http://askubuntu.com – I'm hoping someone here will have some insight. I'm trying to get LIRC working with an old IRman serieal receiver through a USB-Serial adapter and am having some difficulty getting lirc to see any input from the IRman. Here are some details: I am using the Mythbuntu packaged version of LIRC, this is version 0.9.0. The USB-Serial adapter I am using is a Prolific PL2303 based device which Ubuntu udev has located at /dev/ttyUSB0 I have the lines REMOTE_DRIVER="irman" and REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/ttyUSB0" in my /etc/lirc/hardware.conf file. When I run "irrecord test3" I get: irrecord - applicati (HowTos)
