#1 Please do not repeat the same question under multiple sub-topics. http://knoppmyth.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=19771

#2 Please see the Flyspray task list to check the current status or report missing features. My recollection is that there was a ticket for this but it was still unresolved, but I've been otherwise preoccupied for the past couple weeks, so checking is highly recommended.

Just updated R6 and the R6 linhes-scripts.. now on:

Service Menu->linHES configuration->Remotes

i can setup my blaster configuration:

Blaster: Serial
Serial Port: ttyS0
Transmitter: dsh301_311

And rebooted the system.

All fine and good.. but.. what is the name of the shell script to change the channels ?

Tried using the lirc devices and all i got is (running as root):

# irsend --device=/dev/lirc1 SEND_ONCE 301 3
irsend: could not connect to socket
irsend: Connection refused

# irsend --device=/dev/lirc0 SEND_ONCE 301 3
irsend: could not connect to socket
irsend: Connection refused

# irsend SEND_ONCE 301 3
irsend: command failed: SEND_ONCE 301 3
irsend: hardware does not support sending

Thanks for your help..

Try
Code:
/usr/bin/change_chan.sh


Open it first with vi or nano and insure the REMOTE= line is set to what you need.

Code:
# nano /etc/lircd.conf

Ensure your remote name is called "301" (no quotes) i.e. you should see:
Code:
begin remote

  name   301
at the top of your remote control codes for the 301.

Also, what's the output of:
Code:
# ls -l /dev/*lirc*


I have the following:
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     5 2009-04-08 09:35 /dev/lirc -> lirc0
crw-rw---- 1 root root 61, 0 2009-04-08 09:35 /dev/lirc0
srw-rw-rw- 1 root root     0 2009-04-08 09:35 /dev/lircd


Also the output of:
Code:
# ps ax | grep lirc


I have:
Code:
3236 ?        Ss     0:00 runsv lircd
 3260 ?        S      0:03 /usr/sbin/lircd -n -d /dev/lirc0 --output /dev/lircd
10581 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep lirc


and lastly, the output of:
Code:
# ls -l /var/service | grep lircd


You should have:
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2009-03-16 20:17 lircd -> /etc/sv/lircd

mythtv$ irw

Press a few buttons on your remote. What does that output give?

[edit]Also try to execute /usr/bin/chan_change.sh as a regular user, not root[/edit]

apologies for barging in, but I'm getting the same problem with my irblaster in R6. It's a serial port blaster, worked fine under R5.5, on the same comm port, seemed to configure normally through the LinHes service menu but when I try to run /usr/bin/change_chan.sh I get "hardware does not support sending" & this happens no matter what user I run the command as.

my /etc/lircd.conf contains include statements for a hauppage remote (which works fine) and the reciever (pansat) that I'm trying to control via the irblaster. The reciever name specified in /usr/bin/change.chan.sh is the same as in the Mythvantage lircd.conf. any suggestions on where I should start looking?

jbloan & bzImage: Try upgrading as there was recently a lot of work done on IRBlasting that's not on the CD. Do this as user mythtv:

Code:
$ sudo pacman -Syyu


and then try to use the Service Menu > LinHES Configuration to set your blaster settings.

Hi Mihanson, I tried upgrading this morning, but when I try /usr/bin/change_chan.sh I'm still getting :

Just want to double check that you both went into the Service Menu > LinHES Configuration > Remotes after upgrading and tried setting up your remotes/blasters there. Neither of you confirmed that.

[EDIT] Other than that, I'm currently out of ideas. I suggest asking for help on IRC. irc.freenode.net on channel #linhes Maybe a developer has more ideas. [/EDIT]

Yup, I did - even changed it from serial, then changed it back, rebooted to ensure lirc restarted, no change.

OK, when I get home I'll try IRC, thanks Mihanson
