Hello ! Still no /dev/video2 device recognized by the kernel ?

I am working on the v3.0.0 on the dev branch. It could be that your infrared emitter is on /dev/video0. And this new version doesn’t need Windows or anything else. If an instruction exists to turn on the emitter on /dev/video0, it will be found! If you want to test :

  1. clone the git
  2. checkout on dev
  3. uninstall your previous version if you have
  4. then execute sudo bash install or you can build yourself the AUR or COPR package if you prefer
  5. execute sudo linux-enable-ir-emitter configure -d /dev/video0 and look at the infrared emitter and answer the questions asked in the terminal
