LIRC support for ezcast dongle...

Postby shippy » Mon Apr 08, 2019 10:41 am

Hi !

I was wondering if ezcast dongle has LIRC support for regular TV remote control devices ?

This IR RC device could control incoming DLNA streams to ezcast dongle instead of a smartphone.

If not, can LIRC be installed onto the dongle?

The idea would be to insert an IR receiver ( getting keystrokes from a RC device) between the dongle OTG USB end and the Y cable end carrying USB power and WiFi, so the IR codes are sent upstream to the ezcast dongle. These keystrokes could then be processed normally via LIRC package.
