LIRC Setup for Raspberry Pi (Receiver)

Quite simple. Just install it using

sudo apt-get install lirc

Update /boot/config.txt with dtoverlay=gpio-ir,gpio_pin=18

To use lirc in “default” mode (the default mode after installation is “devinput” mode) modify by sudo nano /etc/lirc/lirc_options.conf.

Change to driver = default

BTW: My first post on this blog 🙂
