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.
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.
