GLIBC 2.15 not found (Debian)

Unfortunately, it seems that the GLIBC versions of Ubuntu and Debian are no longer binary compatible. Our .deb binary packages are compiled on Ubuntu machines and do not work on Debian machines. We are looking into a solution for this, but until we find one, Debian users will need to compile their own binaries of […]

Compile LIRC on Fedora (RPM)

Most Linux distro’s include binaries of LIRC, but those binaries are compiled without support for the IguanaIR driver. So, to use our device under LIRC, you need to compile LIRC with support for our driver. Thankfully, on .rpm systems, this can be done is 8 steps: Install our driver (goto downloads section) Download the lirc […]

Compile LIRC into .deb package

Most Linux distro’s include binaries of LIRC, but those binaries are compiled without support for the IguanaIR driver.

Thankfully, on .deb systems, this can be done is 6 steps: Add our debian repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file Install […]

Does USB IR Transciever work with Android?

Not yet. Basically, our software (open source under the GPL V2 and available via SVN here) needs to be ported to Android. Our software depends on relatively few libraries (libc6, udev, libpopt0 and libusb) so if these libraries work on Android, we don’t expect porting to be too hard. That said, our device is very tightly connected to […]

When you double click on the client program igclient.exe, you will briefly see a command window open and then close. This is normal. igclient.exe is a command-line program that takes command line options. If no options are giving, it prints a list of options it takes and closes. To use the program, you need to […]

Very Low Transmit Power with IR Emitters

If you are connecting our IR Emitters directly into your USB IR Transceiver device, then you must only transmit on odd channels. To use channels 2 and 4 (dual socket only) or channels 4 (hybrid or dual socket) you must use the Stereo->Mono adapter. Without this adapter the even channels are shorted to ground and siphon […]

What are the proper settings for WinLIRC?

The receiver type is DCD. The transmitter should be set to DTR. Make sure that the “hardware carrier” box is NOT checked. In fact, no boxes should be checked. Click on the image to th right for a screenshot of WinLIRC properly configured. More information can be found at the WinLIRC homepage. We have experienced […]

Error: Failed to get id. Device may not have one assigned.

If your device id gets messed up, the device will crash right after starting up as whenever igdaemon sees a new device, it asks for the device’s ID and this query is crashing the USB device. If this is the case, you’ll have something like this in your igdaemon log: Feb 19 22:07:03 2012 INFO: […]
