MODE2


 

NAME

mode2, smode2, xmode2 - shows the pulse/space length of infrared signals  

SYNOPSIS

mode2 [options]  

DESCRIPTION

The main purpose of these programs is to check operation of your home-brew LIRC receiver hardware and to see the IR waveform of the remote controller without an expensive oscilloscope. Very useful for debugging. Of course this program won't work with hardware that decodes the signals itself like e.g. TV cards or the Irman.

mode2 will simply print pulse&space lengths to stdout.

DRIVER LOADING

Drivers are loaded dynamically. The directory used for this is determined by (falling priority):
-
The --plugindir option if available.
-
The 'plugindir' entry in the [lircd] section of the lirc_options.conf file.
-
The environment variable LIRC_PLUGINDIR.
-
A hardcoded default (usually /usr/lib[64]/lirc/plugins).
