Hi,

I'm having troubles getting the VRC-1100 IR Remote to work. Plugged it in, lsusb showed that the device was seen by the system. I installed lirc and inputlirc, but after the installation, I'm having problems get lirc to start.

Code:
[email protected]:~$ sudo service lirc stop
sh: echo: I/O error
sh: echo: I/O error

When the system boots, I can see a few blinks on the IR receiver, but then I get the same message and lirc fails to start.

lsusb gives

Code:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 05a4:9881 Ortek Technology, Inc. IR receiver [VRC-1100 Vista MCE Remote Control]

My system:

Code:
[email protected]:~$ uname -r
3.13.0-45-generic

Code:
[email protected]: apt-show-versions lirc
lirc:amd64/trusty 0.9.0-0ubuntu5 uptodate
you shouldn't need lirc at all, the remote registers as HID device and normally works ootb. Some buttons will need keymappings in kodi though.

Ok, I'll try again asap.
Thanks, working out of the box. As you said, no lirc or anything required.
