I’ve been using the RF remote for a long time. Now I would like to experiment with infrared remotes (because I don’t want to have two remotes - one RF for Vero 4k, second one for TV). My LG plasma TV is not working properly with CEC, so HDMI-CEC is not a solution for me.
I’ve made some experiments with the infrared remote.
First issue - my IR extender cable is not working (where attaching to the 3.5mm hole nearest to the corner) the Vero stops respond to IR at all. So I continued with experiments only with internal IR receiver.
Second issue - I’ve tried to learn the Vero from my remote control - using irrecord command. I’ve tried several remote controllers (Samsung, LG, some no-name, Sony receiver, Pioneer DVD) - without success to create usable lirc.conf file. The irrecord is responsing at the first phase (writing “dots” when pressing buttons) but when I try to learn particular key, it ususally writes errors - weird codes etc.
Then I tried to find a ‘ready-made’ lirc.conf file made exactly for my RC (succeded with some old Philips and Samsung remote controller). When selecting it, it started to respond BUT:
Third problem - sometimes the button presses are producing repeat codes - for example for KEY_UP and KEY_DOWN it sometimes reacts properly, sometimes it moves a cursor more times. Is there any option what can be adjusted to be less “sensitive” for repeats?
Please could you provide any advice? I’ve tried almost everything…
