OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2

irw is working as expected but xbmc is not doing anything when pressing the remote..

GPIO-IR does work for me with the latest build.

However it has been a little flaky for a good while. If I reboot the RPi it often won't work and I have to reboot again (sometimes more than once) to get it working.
I've also noticed that not overclocking seems to make it work on boot more often than not. All a little strange Smile

I think it's likely to be an OpenElec issue mostly, but currently the OE devs don't seem that concerned about fixing it. There have been a few reports of similar problems at the OE forum and a dev recently responded that they probably won't investigate unless a lot more people voice reports of issue with it Sad I think they see us users of GPIO IR remotes as being a minority, but I'm sure that if Gotham is released with this problem there is going to be a huge mass of complaints....

And I have a separate issue too that when I have TVHeadend enabled with a USB TV device - the IR remote becomes very erratic and misses most of the presses, which makes it all very nearly unworkable. This was not a problem with early Gotham builds nor Frodo, so again something that needs to be fixed.
