I followed the “getting started guide” to setup and start testing my matrix creator (OS v0.15.0) with a Raspberry Pi 3. The IR part (especially while SENDing) doesn’t seem to work for some reason.
First, when trying matrix.ir(…) it throws an exception, because matrix object doesn’t have any ir property attached to it (i checked it with a console.log(matrix.ir) and it shows “undefined”).
Then I moved to simple lirc commands, and here’s what happens:
- Command “mode2 -d /dev/lirc0” does show some output when I press buttons on my remote, also the blue LED blinks
- Command “irsend SEND_ONCE SONY KEY_POWER” (I have a config for a remote named SONY) shows an error:
irsend: could not connect to socket
irsend: No such file or directory
So, I tried a sudo lircd, and after that that I get a new error:
irsend: command failed: SEND_ONCE Samsung_BN59-00940A KEY_POWER
irsend: hardware does not support sending
Am I missing something ? please advise.
