I have a remote WMC remote someone gave me I want to use. When I try to install lirc it wants setserial which gets stuck installing on "Saving state of known serial devices...". There is a /etc/init.d/lirc.dpkg-new but it fails to start, even then it would be nice to get irrecord working if I find a nicer remote. Ideas why it is getting stuck or how I might get around it? How is the IR connected and where does it show up under /dev?

Having problems trying to get a Android phone IR Remote Client app working with the C1 IR Receiver. Have performed the following commands:

wget http://builder.mdrjr.net/tools/c1/odroi ... _armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i odroid-remote_20141223-3_armhf.deb

Should I be able to find the IR reciever in the input devices (/proc/bus/input/devices) file?
