I am looking for infrared transmitter and receiver devices that work on Linux.
(IR transmitter to control a device with remote control such as TV/STB from a
PC. IR receiver to be able to decode remote control codes for which they
aren't readily available or to use as a general purpose remote control
Came across IR Blaster which can be bought online from irblaster.info and is
supprted by lirc on Linux.
Would be nice if something equivalent is locally available though. Checked
with a no of vendors with no luck.
Also read about recent "Intel Media Series" motherboards that seem to have
built in IR transmitter and receiver headers. But couldn't find a vendor for
these motherboards or any information about what kind of devices connect to
Will appreciate any information.
