Odroid H2 -> IR control

Post by border »

I had this Asus S1-AT5NM10E lying around.
But an Atom D525 clearly does not cut it anymore as a HTPC.
So I decided to try to fit in an Odroid H2.

So far I managed 'fine', though I'm not an experienced DIY person.
So it is a bit messy at the moment.

But since the case has an IR receiver module built in:

I would love to find a way to connect to it the onboard pins to make it work. But I cannot seem to figure it out myself.

Can anyone assist me in the process?
It seems to have the standard 3 pins, though I don't really know which color is which (3,3V, Signal and GND?)

I'd rather not use external usb or other peripherals, just use what is provided here, is that possible with the Odroid H2's pins?

It is not possible since H2 has no IR receiver/decoder chip on the board.

Thanks for the quick reply. That's a pity.

I did come across a tutorial for a raspberry pi to add and IR sensor and was hoping I could translate that to de H2:
using-an-ir-remote-with-a-raspberry-pi-media-center

Does the raspberry pi handle these signals differently? I figure if I could get them into the system, the rest can be fixed with software?

https://flirc.tv/ <= comes highly recommended as the universal solution to most IR things :)

Sounds expensive... I wonder if a plain gpio with the right driver wouldn't work... There is an ir-rx-gpio driver in the mainline kernel, though the ir-tx-gpio driver requires dtb to register the correct gpio...

Because there is no generic purpose input output(GPIO) pins on the H2 board, those bit-bang device driver will not work.
I think a cheap (~$2) Arduino Pro mini 3.3V compatible board will be an affordable solution if you have an experience of Arduino programming.

Thanks for the replies!

I think I will just go for a usb IR controller for now and maybe try the arduino route when I have more free time.
My arduino skills are totally non-existent at this moment, so that might take a while ;)

Updating to an H2+ in the future and getting the pulse-eight cec device might work too.
