If you want to get IRBlaster (see below) to work on the Linux/Synology version of SqueezeCenter, then there are a couple of spookily similar little tweaks required:
IRBlaster will give the 'unable to write file' message in the IR learning app (just as it does in Windows), to fix do this:
- Download and install the latest Synology firmware (we're running DSM 2.1-0844)
- Download and install the SqueezeCenter for Synology.
- Telnet/SSH to your Synology (after enabling Telnet/SSH in the web gui.)
- cd to /var/packages/SqueezeCenter/target/Plugins
- create a new folder there (mkdir IRBlaster) - note case
- grant world-write permissions to the folder (chmod 777 IRBlaster)
- Try the IRBlaster learning app again, and you should find it worked!
The CS407 isnt the fastest embedded Linux box, but SqueezeCenter runs just fine - when installing plug-ins and re-scanning the music library it does groan a little under the strain, and SqueezeCenter stopped a couple of times, but once scanned, it's working just cool.
