Linux How To get a Cyberlink remote working with Suspend & resume on Eden for n00bs
The TopSpeed Cyberlink remote from Jess-Link Product Co also known as a Theatrix from is a really cheap option in the UK. The problem is that for XBMC-live and XBMCbuntu only a handful of buttons work out of the box. Interestingly, all the buttons work out of the box on OpenElec.

There is also an issue with suspending XBMCbuntu and making the resume work from the remote.

I am by no means a linux expert just quiet proficient with linux and good at research Big Grin This represents all the information I found to enable me to get this remote working on my Shuttle XS35, really as a reminder to myself. I have ensured the original authors are referenced as appropriate.

1. Getting the remote working properly.

The Wiki entry is pretty good but there are a few assumptions made that a n00b user might have problems with:

First get root access:
$ sudo -i

Work out which device input your remote is attached to as you will need to select this in the LIRC setup process, unfortunately the LIRC setup lists the devices as listed in the /dev/input/by-path so the method in the wiki didn't work for me, I used evtest instead
Install evtest:
$ apt-get install evtest

Then have a look in the /dev/input/by-path directory:
$ cd /dev/input/by-path
$ ls
pci-0000:00:1b.0-event-sndjack         pci-0000:00:1d.0-usb-0:1:1.1-ir
pci-0000:00:1d.0-usb-0:1:1.0-event-ir  pci-0000:01:00.1-event-sndjack
pci-0000:00:1d.0-usb-0:1:1.1-event-ir  platform-i8042-serio-0-event-kbd

The likely culprit will have event-ir at the end, there should be 2 items, the one you need will end xxx.1-event-ir, make a not of this.

run evtest to check your emote is creating events
$ evtest /dev/input/by-path/pci-0000:00:1d.0-usb-0:1:1.1-event-ir
Input driver version is 1.0.1

If you now press the home key on your remote you should get an output on the screen:
Event: time 1335679744.469531, type 4 (Misc), code 4 (ScanCode), value ffbc000d
Event: time 1335679744.469549, type 1 (Key), code 226 (Media), value 1
Event: time 1335679744.469554, type 1 (Key), code 226 (Media), value 0
Event: time 1335679744.469621, -------------- Report Sync ------------
exit evtest by pressing ctrl & c
Install LIRC
$ apt-get install lirc
During the set up you will need to choose which remote you have, select "hauppauge nova-t 500", for the ir transmitter select "none", for the custom event interface select the device you made a not of and tested above. If you get this wrong then you can re-run the set up with this command: dpkg-reconfigure lirc

Now we need to change LIRC configuration:
First edit /etc/lirc/hardware.conf using your favourite text editor - I like nano
$ nano /etc/lirc/hardware.conf

remove the enitre contents of this file, I find holding down ctrl & k effective, then paste the following:
# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE="Cyberlink Media Centre"
REMOTE_DEVICE="`cat /proc/bus/input/devices | grep -A4 "TopSeed" | grep event | tail -n1 | sed 's/.*\(event[0-9]\+\).*/\/dev\/input\/\1/'`"
REMOTE_LIRCD_ARGS="--device=`cat /proc/bus/input/devices | grep -A4 "TopSeed" | grep event | tail -n1 | sed 's/.*\(event[0-9]\+\).*/\/dev\/input\/\1/'` --driver=dev/input"

#Chosen IR Transmitter

#Enable lircd

#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file

#Try to load appropriate kernel modules

# Default configuration files for your hardware if any

#Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration
#If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application
#that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive
#frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER
#It will then populate all other variables without any user input
#If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure
#to leave this set to "false"
Exit nano by pressing crtl & x , answer y to saving the file.

Next edit the remote button config file, replace old content in /etc/lirc/lircd.conf:
$ nano /etc/lirc/lircd.conf
again remove the entire contents and pate the following:
#This configuration has been automatically generated via
#the Ubuntu LIRC package maintainer scripts.
#It includes the default configuration for the remote and/or
#transmitter that you have selected during package installation.
#Feel free to add any custom remotes to the configuration
#via additional include directives or below the existing
#Ubuntu include directives from your selected remote and/or

#Configuration for the Hauppauge Nova-T 500 remote:
#include "/usr/share/lirc/extras/more_remotes/hauppauge/lircd.conf.hauppauge_novat500"

Restart LIRC:
$ /etc/init.d/lirc restart
test your remote with irw:
$ irw
Press a couple of buttons and you should get some output:
000000000001009e 00 BackExit NOVA-T500
00000000000100e2 00 Pictures NOVA-T500
00000000000100e2 00 Pictures NOVA-T500

Exit root:
$ exit

Next configure XBMC to use your remote events and actions.
First edit the remote control button mapping file, ~/.xbmc/userdata/Lircmap.xml
$ nano ~/.xbmc/userdata/Lircmap.xml
This file might not exist so you will get a blank page with nano otherwise just remove the contents and paste the following:

    <remote device="linux-input-layer">

Next copy the default XBMC remote actions to your user profile:
$ cp  /usr/share/xbmc/system/keymaps/remote.xml ~/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/remote.xml

The are 2 changes you need to make:
$ nano ~/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/remote.xml

using the search function by pressing crtl & w in nano, find the following line:
replace it with:
then find:
replace with:
exit nano and check what you have just done:
$ diff .xbmc/userdata/keymaps/remote.xml /usr/share/xbmc/system/keymaps/remote.xml
The output should look like:
<       <mytv>XBMC.ActivateWindow(MyWeather)</mytv>
>       <mytv>XBMC.ActivateWindow(VideoLibrary,TvShows)</mytv>
<       <subtitle>NextSubtitle</subtitle>
>       <subtitle>ShowSubtitles</subtitle>
Your remote should now work properly in XBMC

2. Set up the suspend function

Installing LIRC cuaes a bug in the suspend function. This thread solves it:
Edit /etc/pm/sleep.d/99lirc-resume
$ sudo nano /etc/pm/sleep.d/99lirc-resume

Comment out the following lines but putting a # at the begining:
rmmod ir-lirc-codec
rmmod lirc_dev

3. Set up resume from USB

There is a german blog to follow to get this working:

For this purpose, we first check whether the USB wake up (in my case USB0, USB1, USB2, USB3...) is activated.
$ cat /proc/acpi/wakeup
Device    S-state      Status   Sysfs node
USB1      S0    *disabled  pci:0000:00:1d.0
USB2      S0    *disabled  pci:0000:00:1d.1
USB3      S0    *disabled  pci:0000:00:1d.2
USB4      S0    *disabled  pci:0000:00:1a.0
USB5      S0    *disabled  pci:0000:00:1a.1
They will probably be disabled, to enable USB0 use:
$ echo "USB0" > /proc/acpi/wakeup
and for USB1 use:
echo "USB1
" > /proc/acpi/wakeup
And so forth, I would enable all the usb devices so it doesn't matter which port you plug the IR receiver into.

And now to enable at start up edit /etc/rc.local:
sudo nano /etc/rc.local
and add the following:
status=`cat /proc/acpi/wakeup | grep "USB0" | awk {'print $3}'`  if [ "$status" = "disabled" -o "$status" = "*disabled" ]; then echo "USB0" > /proc/acpi/wakeup
again add as many of these lines each time adjusting USB0 to the other USB ports.

That's it:
$ sudo reboot
and you should be in business - make sure you set the shutdown action to suspend in the XBMX power saving options.

Please point out any typos, or better ways of doing things - I can't guarantee this will work for you
