There are two common version of the USB IR Receiver/Transmitter

  1. Phillips eHome Infrared Transceiver
  2. SMK eHome Infrared Transceiver

Both are supported in the latest version of LIRC


  • IR Receiver is supported
    • The easiest method of installation is via the LinuxMCE Admin Website
      • Click on Media Directors
      • Scroll to the bottom of the list of configurable items for Infrared Infrared Receivers and select mce_usb2 from the drop down list, this will automatically install the lirc modules and update the lircd.conf file.
      • Reload the Router and you should be good to go.
  • IR Transmitter is supported with driver module lirc_mceusb2 version >= 0.24 (lirc-0.8.2).
    • However, the transmitter is not currently supported in LinuxMCE


1. Currently you need to run the following command in order to get the LIRC modules available for use

  depmod -ae
  modprobe lirc_mceusb2

This should allow the modules to be available and you should be able to use the remote control with the USB dongle included with the remote.
