Sigmatel SCSI & RAID Devices Driver

Hi,Sigmatel SCSI & RAID Devices Driver

Drivers for Infrared devices. We've found 127 drivers for 63 Infrared devices by 16 manufacturers, which you can download absolutely free of charge. To download drivers choose the manufacturer or device. IDT/Sigmatel codecs¶ Analog Loopback This control enables/disables the analog-loopback circuit. This appears only when “loopback” is set to true in a codec hint (see HD-Audio.txt). Note that on some codecs the analog-loopback and the normal PCM playback are exclusive, i.e. When this is on, you won’t hear any PCM stream. Swap Center/LFE.


I'm trying to install a SigmaTel USBIRDA stick on my laptop to communicate with my Polar 725 watch. This combination works fine in Windows 7.
I have searched on the internet for a solution but haven't been able to make it work in openSuse 13.1. There is a lot of information available but all seems to be outdated (meaning older driver/module versions on older kernel versions).
The man pages created more confusion because I am not sure if these are still up-to-date. ( my SigmaTel usbirda is not compatible with the actual protocols?!?)
Below some detailed info of my actual configuration:
  • openSuse13.1 on a Dell laptop vostro V13 - 4Gib RAM, wtih 2 USB2.0 ports, connected with a docking unit (ASIX) with additional USB ports, parallel & serial ports + networkconnection
  • USB IRDA stick ( model IRwave IR-721 with cdrom linux driver for kernel 2.4.26, that I am not using because newer kernel in openSuse 13.1 ); this stick is made by SigmaTel.; I plugged in on my laptop directly; not on the docking station.

I have installed additional package IRDA and tried via Yast to start the service irattach but with no success. It seems to me that this service is not compatible with my USB stick.
I am missing some basic knowledge on how IrDA works: what (part of) modules are responsible for the low level installation and what part is handling the rest. Why do I see ir_usb and irda_usb; are they conflicting? ; are irda & sitr4200 conflicting ? what does dongle converter means? it attachs to a serial port named ttyUSB1; is this the communication port with my watch? What is device irda0, where is needed for?

The error message ' [ 527.929587] irda-usb: probe of 2-3:1.0 failed with error -2 ' is this clue for my problem?
Hopefully, someone can help me out.

USBstick was still not blinking, indicating sending/receiving activity; therefore checked kernel messages; i left out part of messages, just to see IRDA and USB.
I also removed and reinstalled ir_usb, irda_usb modules ...
