ir-keytable or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying about the LIRC Kernel
#22
Thank's alot for this thread, it helped me to get my MCS-remote working!!

Was a long way for me .... I will tell the whole story .. maybe somebody else can profit from it:
- First I tried directly with lirc, tryd various different settings and drivers ... best I could get, when pressing a button was: "error reading /dev/lirc0" Undecided
- For some time I played a bit with "irrecord -d /dev/lirc0 -H devinput test.txt", which actually was able to give me keycodes to my keys
- I tried to figure out why always the message "can't get exclusive access to events coming from /dev/lirc0 interface" popped up when starting irw/lircd
- Because of that I found out, that there is "inputlirc" now ... basically I got the same problems with that Confused
- Than I sooner or later found this thread ... first time I was able to get some more input while using "Driver mceusb, table rc-rc6-mce, protocols: RC-5 RC-6" ... however still most keys from the remote did not react at all ... and the keys which did work, only worked when pressing them for 2sec ... often "ir-keytable -t" received only raw-signals, if any. Undecided
- I was lucky that I tried the remote on my other PC, which has exactly the same OS --> There it worked out of the box, with all keys.
- After some more testing/investigation, I figured out, that my media-pc front-USB connectors are running USB3.0 ... same for the half of my backside-usb-connectors Blush ... I re-plugged the device to one of the backside USB2.0 connectors --> Yay, finally all keys work out of the box as well for my media-pc !!

My Hardware: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1700, IR-Receiver: SMK Manufacturing, Inc. eHome Infrared Receiver
My Software: $uname -a: Linux media-pc 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.46-1 x86_64 GNU/Linux (Wheezy)
