I'm slowly working on 8.2 build with Nougat kernel, it should have working LIRC. I can't give you an ETA, too much more important things to do recently.
I understand, but its really hard to use it without remote control.
Actually I cannot get it working even with meson-ir as irrecord does not catch anything.
Thats great kszaq. Thanks.
BTW, when can we expect new version with fixed LIRC, you were talking about on odroid forum?
I installed it on my C2 and it works great, even HiFi Shield works out of the box.
However I got some questions:
1) Could you include PVR addons? I miss them very much. Without them Kodi is not usable for me.
2) Could you also include GPIO based IR driverfor C2 (en:c2_lirc [ODROID Wiki])?
