This is the Lirc Client plugin support thread, post any questions, comments, suggestions, bug reports etc. about this plugin in this thread. As always feedback from users would be very welcome!
I have posted a guide explaining how to run winlirc with realtime priority, which improves it's performance, in this post.
As of December 2007 you can find the latest version of these files in the EventGhost SVN. They are also included in all future beta versions, so easiest way to obtain the latest version is to install the latest nightly beta.
I have quoted the original starting post for the thread below, since it's become quite irrelevant as a starting post.
It reads on the wiki that a plugin for these remotes can't currently be written:
* LIRC Serial Port Receiver
I thaught that in the meantime before somebody writes a plugin for using those devices directly I would just continue using winlirc, but there wasn't a plugin for that either, so I wrote one..
you can get it here: http://www.zendurl.com/jinxdone/files/Lirc-v0.5.0.zip
**EDIT** newer version is as an attachment
It's still a work in progress, but gets the job done. As far as improvements go I was hoping to hear what you guys have to say about it? Also If you want to test it I'd like to hear what you think.
Also I need to do a few changes in it which of I'm not sure how to:
1. If no socket connection can be opened, disable the plugin (Same what the Disable Item action does, and as far as i understand this might not be currently possible)
2. A better way of creating enduring events is needed, as the current one is quite a hack, so ideas are welcome.
Btw why there aren't attachments allowed in this forum?
