Hi all,

I am trying to set up my IR remote.

ir-keytable shows that ir-6 kernel protocol is not enabled (only lirc is listed in Enabled Kernel Protocol section):

$ sudo ir-keytable
Found /sys/class/rc/rc0/ (/dev/input/event5) with:
    Name: Media Center Ed. eHome Infrared Remote Transceiver (1934:5168)
    Driver: mceusb, table: rc-rc6-mce
    LIRC device: /dev/lirc0
    Supported kernel protocols: lirc rc-5 rc-5-sz jvc sony nec sanyo mce_kbd rc-6 sharp xmp imon
    Enabled kernel protocols: lirc
    bus: 3, vendor/product: 1934:5168, version: 0x0001
    Repeat delay = 500 ms, repeat period = 125 ms

This remote works on another machine whose Enabled kernel protocol has both "lirc" and "rc-6".

How do I enable rc-6 kernel protocol?
sudo ir-keytable -p rc-6,lirc

OR

sudo ir-keytable -p all to turn all of 'em on.

Hint - man ir-keytable Wink
Make sure you don't have lirc running with the default (/dev/lirc0) driver, this will disable all kernel protocol decoders. With your setup rc-6 and the rc6-mce keymap should be enabled by default.

so long,

Hias

Yes, I tried it before and it didn't work:

$ sudo ir-keytable -p all -t -v

Then it doesn't react on my remote. Maybe something needs to be enabled system-wide?

LIRC is not installed on this system.
