Setting up lircd with the hdhomerun and a Tivo series 2 remote

To set up lircd with the hdhomerun to see a tivo series 2 remote control, you should first program the HDHomeRun to send UDP packets to your linux computer with a command such as the following:

hdhomerun_config <device id> set /ir/target "<lircd ip addr>:<port> store"

You can test that this is working by running:

irrecord -H udp -d 5000 "testing"

If you get dots when you press your remote control buttons, the HDHomeRun is sending IR information to your linux box. (remember to unblock UDP port 5000 for incoming transmissions if you are running a firewall!)

Once that is working, just set up your /etc/lirc hardware.conf and lircd.conf files to support the Tivo series 2 remote.

Here are the entires from my files, starting with hardware.conf:

# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
#
# Arguments which will be used when launching lircd
REMOTE_LIRCD_ARGS="-H udp -d 5000"

#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
#START_LIRCMD=false
START_LIRCD="true"

#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
LOAD_MODULES=true

# Run "lircd --driver=help" for a list of supported drivers.
REMOTE_DRIVER=""

# If DEVICE is set to /dev/lirc and devfs is in use /dev/lirc/0 will be
# automatically used instead
REMOTE_DEVICE=""
REMOTE_MODULES=""

# Default configuration files for your hardware if any
REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF=""
LIRCMD_CONF=""
REMOTE="None"
TRANSMITTER="None"
TRANSMITTER_MODULES=""
TRANSMITTER_DRIVER=""
TRANSMITTER_DEVICE=""
TRANSMITTER_LIRCD_CONF=""
TRANSMITTER_LIRCD_ARGS=""
START_LIRCMD=""
FORCE_NONINTERACTIVE_RECONFIGURATION="true"
REMOTE_SOCKET=""
TRANSMITTER_SOCKET=""

And then the lircd.conf file:

# contributed by Joel Ebel

#

# brand: TIVO

# model no. of remote control: This is for the Tivo with the DVR 1/2 switch

# devices being controlled by this remote: Tivo Series 2 (maybe more)

# This conf file allows the support of Tivo Series 2 remote. In particular,

# it allows for the unique key definitions for each of the 39 keys when DVR

# Switch is in positon 1 or 2. This essentially doubles the number of keys

# one can use just by toggling between DVR 1 and 2. For example, an lircrc

# file can be programmed to execute one thing when the play button is pressed

# when in DVR 1 mode and execute a different function when the same key is

# pressed when in DVR 2 mode.

#

# In order to use this, one must first set the remote. Move the DVR SWITCH

# to 1. Next, Press and hold the PAUSE and TiVo buttons simultaneously

# until the red light at the end of the remote control comes on, remains

# steady, and then stays on when you release the buttons. Now press 1.

# Do the same when switched to DVR 2 (assigning it to a number 2).

#

# Now you can use the codes below. All the functions which begin with a 1

# are associated with the DVR1 switch and those prefixed with 2 are assoc

# with DVR 2 switch. Since the remote allows it to be programmed with any

# number between 0 and 9 (zero is the default), all the codes are provided

# below, A remote set to 0 will control any tivo, and a tivo set to

# 0 will accept any remote.

# My lircrc file for MythTV with this remote can be found here:

2 thoughts on “Setting up lircd with the hdhomerun and a Tivo series 2 remote

  1. I am trying to get HDHomeRun to work with Tivo remote. Kinda works but I’m getting double actions for every one button press.

    any thoughts?

    thanks.

  2. Make sure that you have done a full “reset” on your tivo remote to clear out any TV or Amplifier settings on it.

    I am using the lircd.conf TIVO configuration file by Joel Ebel created on: Mon Oct 6 18:29:46 2003
    With a TIVO 2 remote.

    In my /etc/mythtv directory, I have an lircrc file, and all of my buttons have the “repeat = 4” directive, which may help you.
