How can i monitor IR-Remote Keys?
#1
I have a zotac media remote that i wish too map via keyboard.xml. But how can i see what key is assigned too on the pressed button? alot off keys / buttons are self explanatory and work fine, but i wish to change the red,green,blue,yellow,teletext etc to assign to something.

At the command line, you be able to type 'IRW' and the when you press a button, the code will show up on the screen. I'm not sure if you need to edit keyboard.xml or Lircmap.xml & remote.xml for you install(for MCE remote you do.)

Hmm ok.. that probably means your remote is working differently then a MCE remote. I'm not sure what to do next(only have one remote myself)

thanks for your help, from 'dmesg | grep -i usb' it registers as input: PHILIPS MCE USB IR Receiver- Spinel plus...

i reviewed this thread http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=133071, but now my remote doesn't work at all after following bennyp's write up (either i missed a step or its not valid with xbmcbunutu)... anyone else wish too share there thoughts or experience?

Is Lirc installed?

If "irw" shows "no such file or directory" I think lirc isn´t installed after all. So you have to do this first

If lirc is installed you probably can try

Code:
dpkg-reconfigure lirc

after that you chose the "Phillips"-Section that fits to your device...for "transmitter" you chose "none"

Then restart the system and try "irw" again

So it said the package wasnt fully installed... I then apt-get install lirc and in the config to select remote, there is only 1 philips (Philips SRM 7500 RF remote) and i cant see one that would be the right one...
