Lirc works, XBMC does not
Hi, there. I am running XBMC 13.1 (f2acae7) Gotham on an Intel NUC and XBMCbuntu . Until yet I use the iOS RC software and I am quite happy with that. But when it’s dark I prefer a remote with physical buttons. That’s why I read quit a lot tutorials and documentation about Lirc, XBMC and the involved config files.
Lirc seems to work, but I cannot control XBMC using my RC.

My progress so far:
irw shows the expected output (I named my remote pioneer):
00000000f50a4fb0 00 KEY_UP pioneer
00000000c53a9966 00 KEY_DOWN pioneer
00000000c53a9966 00 KEY_LEFT pioneer
00000000c53a9966 00 KEY_RIGHT pioneer

my xbmc.log knows about my button presses:
21:16:30 T:140603647997888   DEBUG: LIRC: Update - NEW at 674076:00000000f50a4fb0 00 KEY_UP pioneer (KEY_UP)

my \~/.xbmc/userdata/Lircmap.xml looks like this:
<remote device="pioneer">






my \~/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/remote.xml looks like this. To keep it simple I only configured left and right. I expect left and right to be working within XBMC's home screen.

Thank you for your hints. If you need more information, I can provide lircd.conf and hardware.conf, too.

Should be (at least in my keymap)


Also is this a typo here, or actually in your Lircmap.xml ?
Could be upsetting the parsing of the file.
Learning Linux the hard way !!
With one look you spotted the problem. Thank you. A tiny slash broke my config!
I spend more than 6 hours to look for the problem.
