LIRC problems with Apple remote on Intel NUC (Haswell) - Pandysan - 2014-03-08


So my problem is more or less that I am not sure how to fill out the hardware.conf.

The driver i am using is nuvoton-cir, which also makes the IRC on the Intel NUC able to register my apple remote (a1294). So obviously they communicate with eachother.

HOWEVER, nuvoton-cir is not a registered driver on the lirc list of compatible drivers/devices (I look through another forum, and I'm pretty sure it is the right driver that is loading. Others have done the same, and I also have a script that loads the driver for the IRC on NUC on each bootup).

My question is though, how do I fill out my hardware.conf properly? I've been able to create a lircd.conf for my remote, but it only list the inputs as "raw code". Which I don't seem to see on other guides within this topic.

Some of my info:

$ cat /proc/bus/input/devices

$ ir-keytable -d /dev/lirc0
Quote:Found /sys/class/rc/rc0/ (/dev/input/event9) with:
Driver nuvoton-cir, table rc-rc6-mce
Supported protocols: NEC RC-5 RC-6 JVC SONY SANYO LIRC other
Enabled protocols: LIRC
Repeat delay = 500 ms, repeat period = 125 ms
Should the enabled protocols even be LIRC, or should I use RC-6 (or a third option)?

Many thanks in advance, for anybody willing to assist! Smile
