NAME

irrecord - application for recording IR-codes for usage with LIRC

CONTENTS

Synopsis
Description

SYNOPSIS

irrecord [options] file

DESCRIPTION

This program will record the signals from your remote control and create a config file for lircd. A proper config file for lircd is maybe the most vital part of this package, so you should invest some time to create a working config file. Although I put a good deal of effort in this program it is often not possible to automatically recognize all features of a remote control.

If the program fails to recognize the protocol of the remote control you should use the --force option to at least create a config file in raw mode.

If file already exists and contains a valid config irrecord will use the protocol description found there and will only try to record the buttons. This is very useful if you want to learn a remote where config files of the same brand are already available. Of course this will only work if the remotes use the same protocol but it’s worth a try. You will find template files for the most common protocols in the remotes/generic/ directory of this package. The name of the new file is created by appending .conf to the given filename in this case.
