v17 LibreELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 17.0)
I'm a little confused about this 'fixed' lirc in #0714 and later having just tried it and #0716.
I use "dtoverlay=gpio-ir" in config.txt to drive my IR rx device.

When I go back to #0618 everything works (i.e. I can use my remote to drive kodi's interface):
Quote:- section of dmesg with #0618

[ 20.467929] input: lircd as /devices/virtual/input/input2

For a while I would swear I was using #0711 last weekend and that seemed to work, but now it won't (even if I downgrade to #0618 and then back to #0711)

ssh into the box: irw fails to show any keypresses, even if I 'systemctl stop kodi'

If I killall -9 lircd and lirceventd then run irrecord the IR driver seems to be working fine, so this looks like a remaining lircd problem.

Testing with #0716 I get the same behaviour:

I've tried swapping back to "dtoverlay=lirc-rpi" but that doesn't seem to change anything. Still no response to my remote using irw or within kodi.

[ 16.512518] lirc_rpi: driver registered!
[ 20.093975] input: lircd as /devices/virtual/input/input0

NB: My remote isn't a MCE remote or such, it's just a one I had lying around which I created an lircd.conf file for using irrecord and put in /storage/.config

I've tried the lastest Alpha LibreElec builds and they have the same issue. (7.0.1 and 7.0.0 work)

Something's obviously different for me compared to all the other happy campers out there.

Any suggestions?
