Full Version: Multiple RC-6 IR recievers
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hi, I am using Xubuntu 15.04 with Kodi 15.1 and I get the below output when using
Code:
ir-keytable
If I use the IR receiver found at /dev/input/event3 (the first one found) then I get input when using the remote and all works well. But I want to use the IR receiver found at /dev/input/event5 (the second one found), if I use the remote on that IR receiver then I get no response. The reason I have two is the first one (/dev/input/event3) is built into my TBS6984 satellite card, but I don't want to use that IR reciever.
So my question is, how do I use the IR receiver /dev/input/event5 (the second one found)?

Code:
Found /sys/class/rc/rc0/ (/dev/input/event3) with:
  Driver saa716x, table rc-tbs-nec
  Supported protocols: NEC RC-5 RC-6 JVC SONY LIRC other
  Enabled protocols: NEC RC-5 RC-6 JVC SONY LIRC other
  Name: saa716x IR (TurboSight TBS 6984)
  bus: 1, vendor/product: 6984:0013, version: 0x0001
  Repeat delay = 500 ms, repeat period = 125 ms
Found /sys/class/rc/rc3/ (/dev/input/event5) with:

Look at /etc/lirc/hardware.conf you should be able to modify the REMOTE_DEVICE= or something.

That done the trick, thanks. I uninstalled ir-keytable, installed lirc, edited the /etc/lirc/hardware.conf file:

Changed:
REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/lirc0"

To:
REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/lirc1"

Rebooted, and all works well, thank you.
Excellent, full edit main post and select solved from drop down menu.
