Full Version: Apple TV [Gen 1] Can't get XBOX DVD Remote to work
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I've had the XBOX remote in use since the XBMP and XBMC days on my original modded XBOX. Suffice to say, I am enamored with the original remote and the great work of the XBMC developers.

I'm running Crystalbuntu on a 1st generation Apple TV (the big aluminum one). XBMC works really well with a Broadcom CrystalHD BCM70015 mini pci-e card. However, I can't seem to get the original XBOX remote to function.

I'm not very Linux savvy, I have dabbled here and there with installs and live cds but know very little about command line stuff. I followed the directions I found on this blog post which based the information from this Ubuntu Forums post.

Everything seemed to install correctly and after restarting my remote still did not work. I'm not sure how to see what is wrong. I know that my Apple TV does see the XBOX remote dongle hardware.

Any help is appreciated, I am willing to reformat and reinstall Crystalbuntu to the hard drive if necessary in order to start fresh as I'm not sure how to undo the changes I've made. Thanks!
I'm not familiar with the Apple TV installation but here are the instructions for the XBMC DVD remote in XBMCBuntu

You have to install a lirc patch and modify the lirc configuration to get it working in Ubuntu - might have to do the same for apple tvs
Thanks for the help. I started with a fresh Crystalbuntu install and I got up to the "make" command and it got stuck on an error on the bottom line.
