IR control Webradio

Hi there

Im new to volumio, Im sure this has been covered before.

I want to use my logitech remote to control volumio, with out using the web interface. I would like to use my remote to recall saved favourite web radio stations. I was wondering if this is possible? If so, How would i go about doing this?



Hello there,

first you should have a look at the IR-control thread over here:

I solved this task on my Harmon Elite with sort of a workaround:
choose Odroid remote in the IR-remote plugin
choose Odroid C2 remote in the Harmony app
add each radio stationyou would like to toggle through to a seperate playlist named like the radiostation itself
edit lircrc-file under /data/plugins/system_controller/ir_controller/configurations/Odroid\ Remote by changing config=… for Menu button (or any button you wish) to the following: config = /usr/bin/curl “” (while FM4 is the name of the playlist containing the radiostation)
now just add all the playlists/radio stations you want to toggle through with another config for Menu button below the first config and safe the file
re-select Odroid remote in IR-remote plugin
Now you should be able to toogle through your radiostations pressing the Menu-button on your Logitech remote.

Best regards

Hi Raendy,

great tip. Thanks.

Just to update the information for the new version 1.2 of the plugin. The path for changing lircrc is now:
/data/plugins/accessory/ir_controller/configurations/Odroid Remotes

The rest still works as per your post.
