I try to connect the Apple A1294 as IR remote control on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ with HiFi Berry DAC+.
I installed the PluIns: FusionDSP, TouchDisplay, IR Remote Controller and activated them.
I do not use the touch functionality of the TouchDisplay PlugIn therefore I need the full IR Remote Controller function.
After installing the IR Remote Controller and configuring it for Apple Remote A1294 - nothing happens, nevertheless what I configured (always with reboots).
Then I saw that the directory: /data/INTERNAL/ir_controller/configurations
was empty and I created a subdir “Apple Remote A1294”
There I created a file lircd.conf with the following content:
# Please make this file available to others # by sending it to <email@example.com> # # this config file was automatically generated # using lirc-0.9.0(default) on Tue Jun 2 22:56:05 2015 # # contributed by DBMandrake # # brand: Apple # model no. of remote control: A1294 (silver) # devices being controlled by this remote: # begin remote name Apple_A1294 bits 8 flags SPACE_ENC|CONST_LENGTH eps 30 aeps 100 header 9140 4510 one 633 1666 zero 633 537 ptrail 631 repeat 9137 2220 pre_data_bits 16 pre_data 0x77E1 post_data_bits 8 post_data 0x2C gap 108756 toggle_bit_mask 0x0 ignore_mask 0x80ff begin codes KEY_UP 0x50 KEY_DOWN 0x30 KEY_LEFT 0x90 KEY_RIGHT 0x60 KEY_OK 0x3A 0xA0 KEY_MENU 0xC0 KEY_PLAY 0xFA 0xA0 end codes end remote
After a reboot it works for Play/Stop Forward/Backward Volume
but the MENU button doesn’t work.
I would expect that the Left/Right/Up/Down keys work like a mouse after switching to MENU, but nothing happens.
Has anyone a tip for me?
Thanx a lot in advance
