Linux [xbmcbuntu] [SOLVED] some buttons not working PHILIPS MCE USB IR Receiver-Spinel plus
#61
Has anyone tried http://askubuntu.com/questions/69804/how...-presenter for this device.

This seems to be the only proper way to also get it upstream in future. It does not require compiling anything. All what is required is editing one udev rule and one text file (keymap).

Anyone know if you loose these remote settings if you upgrade to the latest xbmc (12)??

Thanks

Hi-

I am just trying to map the Context Menu to one button on my Zotac remote. Do I have to go through the above steps? If successful, will this allow me to hit ContextMenu from a button? Which button?

Thanks!
Setup:
- nvidia Shield TV Pro
- 8TB Synology DS214play
- 2TB External eSATA

Hi,

I am using a Zotac AD10, Ubuntu 12.04 + Kernel 3.8 (Had some issues with suspend to ram with the original kernel).
I kept to the Howto of Fritsch in Post 35. After installation I started lirc manually using
sudo /etc/init.d/lirc restart
and restarted xbmc
sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm restart.
Everything was working great (Even the color buttons).
However after reboot the internal IR receiver did not work anymore. Even restarting lirc and xbmc manually didn't solve the problem. Am I missing something.

Thanks

Hi there,

I followed every step by using "guilmxm" Tutorial ( http://youresuchageek.blogspot.fr/2012/0...linux.html ) - in this case only the remote part (external USB), but although I didn't get any errors while compiling the sources and such, I'm not able to get any feedback when using the remote - after every single step completed.

Reverting the "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf" back to default brings back the support for my remote, but only as a keyboard. So many keys are missing any functionality.

I created a debug log and uploaded it to xbmclogs, here: http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=24806
I double checked the "Lircmap.xml" as well. No XML element errors there...

Thank you for your help! Angel

Hi,

I followed the instructions on http://youresuchageek.blogspot.nl/2012/0...linux.html to install Lubuntu+XBMC on my Zotac ZBOX Nano XS AD13.
All works fine, except for a few remote buttons in XBMC (I'm using the internal iR so I took the sudo apt-get install lirc route).
The remote should be similar to the remote of the AD11, but some buttons behave different in XBMC:

- Left power button (O) opens "quick config" menu.
- Right power button (|) opens "context" menu (not sure how this menu is called, it's the same as the right-click menu in windows).
- Info button (i) also opens "context" menu.
- Context menu button (the one left of the Enter button) opens a PVR command (which I don't have so XBMC says "no PVR client has been started yet").

Rest of the buttons work fine, where should I look to fix this?

When I run the latest OpenElec from USB-drive all buttons work like they should:

- Left power button (O) puts device in sleep mode
- Right power button (|) opens shutdown menu
- Info button (i) opens information page
- Context menu button opens context menu


Thanks in advance!

Ok I fixed it myself by checking the iR commands with irw and editing Lircmap.xml and remap.xml.
The context menu button I meant was actually the EPG button ;-)

For those interested, here's my current config for the ZBOX AD13:

I am trying to get the Internal CIR header working in Linux. I have a Sony RM-MCE20 media center remote and a TSOP38238 connected to the CIR header. This works great in Windows 7 . The CIR chip is the same as mentioned here, the ITE 8704 .
I have tried many settings but getting through the LIRC config seems daunting.

I found a MCE remote file at http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/mceu...onf.mceusb and used only the MCEUSB part

Actually I get the same results with the remote if LIRC is not running

My hardware.conf

Hi all

I've just installed debian wheezy on my HTPC and have the same problem like the topicstarter had.

I did all the intructions from post 10, new lirc successfully compiled and installed.

Only one thing, debian uses sysvinit instead of upstart in ubuntu, so my udev rule is:

Code:
# uname -a
Linux MMC 3.14-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.14.4-1 (2014-05-13) x86_64 GNU/Linux

# cat /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules
SUBSYSTEM=="usb" , ATTRS{idVendor}=="0471", ATTRS{idProduct}=="20cc", SYMLINK+="remote", ACTION=="add"

# ls -l /dev/remote

# dmesg | grep PHILIPS

Now when I try to check remote is working. I launch lircd in one console and irw in another (both via ssh):

Code:
# /usr/sbin/lircd -n -H zotac -d /dev/remote
lircd: lircd(zotac) ready, using /var/run/lirc/lircd
lircd: accepted new client on /var/run/lirc/lircd
lircd: zotac initializing '/dev/remote'
lircd: WARNING: Failed to initialize hardware
^Clircd: caught signal
lircd: closing '/dev/remote'

Help me please, what am I doing wrong?

Code:
# cat /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
# hardware.conf for Zotac
#

Now it works like a charm:

00000000000c0224 00 KEY_BACK zotac.conf
00000000000c008d 00 KEY_TITLE zotac.conf
0000000000070028 00 KEY_OK zotac.conf

Also, I changed one line in .xbmc/userdata/Lircmap.xml
Code:
<display>KEY_MENU</display>
to
Code:
<menu>KEY_MENU</menu>
for proper work HOME (windows flag) button.

Many thanks, FernetMenta!
