       irrecord	- application for recording IR-codes for usage with LIRC

       irrecord	[options] file

       This  program will record the signals from your remote control and cre-
       ate a config file for lircd. A proper config file for  lircd  is	 maybe
       the  most vital part of this package, so	you should invest some time to
       create a	working	config file. Although I	put a good deal	of  effort  in
       this  program  it  is often not possible	to automatically recognize all
       features	of a remote control.

       If the program fails to recognize the protocol of  the  remote  control
       you  should  use	the --force option to at least create a	config file in
       raw mode.

       If file already exists and contains a valid config  irrecord  will  use
       the  protocol  description  found there and will	only try to record the
       buttons.	This is	very useful if you want	to learn a remote where	config
       files of	the same brand are already available. Of course	this will only
       work if the remotes use the same	protocol but it's  worth  a  try.  You
       will  find  template  files  for	 the  most common protocols in the re-
       motes/generic/ directory	of this	package. The name of the new  file  is
       created by appending .conf to the given filename	in this	case.

       The  documentation  for	lirc is	maintained as html pages. They are lo-
       cated under html/ in the	documentation directory.

       Further information on this topic is available in section  "Adding  new
       remote controls"	in html/help.html
