I bought your DVB-T dongle (black one) about a year ago, but couldn’t get it to work, so I left it. Now I’ve had another go and connected it to a proper aerial via an MCX to Coax pigtail and have finally had success at viewing TV channels in LibreELEC/Kodi using TVHeadend. (I guess the supplied aerial hasn’t got enough gain for my area).
Anyway, the DVB-T dongle comes with an Infra-Red remote control. Can you tell me if the dongle has a built-in IR-Receiver that it works with, or do I have to add one to the Pi itself? At the moment it doesn’t seem to do anything. I tried adding “dtoverlay=lirc-rpi” to /flash/config.txt and rebooting, but it still didn’t do anything. Is there any other configuration or Addon I need to use? (I also tried Xbian and OSMC but LibreElec was the only one I managed to get TVHeadEnd working in).
EDIT: I discovered the dongle does have an IR receiver exposed as /dev/lirc0, So now I just have to work out how to use lirc to configure it.
