Octo and LIRC

Has anyone used rpi's LIRC module for IR remote control along with the octo? Whenenver I add a line like this to my /boot/config.txt:

Code: Select all

dtoverlay=lirc-rpi,gpio_in_pin=23,gpio_out_pin=22
then the octo card is no longer detected. The module tries to load, but fails to init the card. I've tried a number of unused GPIOs (avoiding pins 12,13,15,16,18,29,35,38,40 or GPIOs 5,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,27) but whenever that overlay is loaded, regardless of which pins I assign, it seems to disrupt octo workings.

Any ideas?
