I tried to add my Qnap remote control to the IR Remote Controller plugin list.
I added a new folder to /data/plugins/system_controller/ir_controller/configurations and placed the remotes specific lircd.conf and lircrc files there.
The IR Remote Controller plugin list showed my new remote and I was able to activate it.
The remote worked so far. But after rebooting the system Volumio didn’t react to any of the remote actions.
The remote starts to work again if I activate it again via the IR plugin.
Needs the plugin to be modified at some point to remember my additional entries?
The plugin version is 14-11-2017.
It seems that there is a newer version that will not be automatically updated and needs to be installed by hand via shell commands.
But this is a little to complicated for me. I tried it but it didn’t work out at all.
my configuration is:
PiFi Digi Board (with build in IR receiver - not used)
Remote Pi Board (with IR receiver - in use) and the Volumio Remote Pi plugin.
