Realtek Venus IR Write-Only device driver Description: The aim of this driver is to add write capability to the existing Venus IR driver used on RTD 1073/1283 Linux based platforms. Once installed, the module will create a /dev/venus_irrp_wo driver, to which you can write (binary) sequences of IR codes. A 'fakekey' sysfs is also created in /sys/devices/platform/VenusIR_W/fakekey, so that you can use something like: echo 'fa05ff00' > /sys/devices/platform/VenusIR_W/fakekey to send an IR key to the IR driver Compilation: You must have the sources for an RTD 1073/1283 Linux kernel available, as well as a MIPS compilation toolchain. You can find a fedora VMWare image with such a toolchain, as well as an RTD1283 kernel source (for Xtreamer devices) at: http://code.google.com/p/xtreamerdev/downloads/list Edit KERNELDIR in the Makefile to point to your kernel source and run 'make' Installation: Copy venus_ir_wo.ko to your Realtek system, and run: insmod venus_ir_wo.ko (For debug, you can add a 'debug=1' parameter to the line above) This will create /dev/venus_irrp_wo and /sys/devices/platform/VenusIR_W/fakekey which you can then use to send IR keys to running applications Note: Depending on the device and applications, you may have to send the same key twice for it to be recognized.
