Well it looks like the knob is a bit sensitive I can't get under four recording in a row by just touching it in irw
Is there a setting for fixing this ?
Normally you could change this behaviour in the lircrc file, but XBMC doesn't use lircrc files for its configuration. So you have to live with this repeat level. You'll get used to it :-)

Where does XBMC look for the Lircmap.xml file ?
I have it in /home/xbmc/.xbmc/userdata/
But doesn't work.
The path $HOME/.xbmc/userdata is correct. How does your Lircmap.xml file look like? You can't assign custom tags in this file but you have to map your buttons to the standard LIRC buttons provided by XBMC. I can't send you my Lircmap.xml file because I patched my XBMC to be able to use all my remote buttons. Therefore my Lircmap.xml file looks very different from a standard one.
If you can see your buttons with 'irw' you will be able to get XBMC to work.

I have only installed xbmc package
Hmm, guess this should be enough, but I'm not sure. I compiled my own XBMC version with custom patches, so I don't use the standard packages.
Quote:What did you do to assign the different config files to right device so it is there when you reboot?
For Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) you can adjust your /etc/lirc/hardware.conf file like this:
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE="iMon Soundgraph Dev 0"
#Chosen IR Transmitter
TRANSMITTER="iMon Soundgraph Dev 1"
#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
# Default configuration files for your hardware if any
#Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration
#If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application
#that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive
#frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER
#It will then populate all other variables without any user input
#If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure
#to leave this set to "false"
I'm not sure if I did any changes to /etc/init.d/lirc, too. If it doesn't work for you, I can provide my /etc/init.d/lirc file.
Quote:The other problem is that XBMC doesn't pick up on any buttons. (Any chance you can post your Lircmap.xml file?)
And neater does the display, but using the pearl
For the LCD you need to get the LCDd running. After starting LCDd it should print some status information on the LCD display. If you don't get this status information you lirc LCD driver may be the problem. I had many problems with this driver, too. Only the drivers from the CVS version seem to work properly, even though some people claim you could just use the 0.8.4 release. Another problem is the LCDd patch. There are different versions with different features. I can send you the patch I used if you need it.

Hahah, you are right :-) I was on the wrong machine when I checked it using 'lsusb'. I have a 15c2:0038, too.
