Lirc isn´t working correctly with Kodi 17
#1
Hello!

Perhaps someone has an solution for me.
I have a problem to get lirc working correctly with my libreelec/kodi installation.
I use an XBOX one media remote.
when I create an new lirc.conf with 0.9.4 the remote does nothing anymore.

new lirc with 0.9.4

With an old lirc Version/config (0.9.1) the remote is usable. but some buttons aren´t working anymore.

this is the lircmap:

<enter>KEY_TAB</enter>

<skipminus>KEY_PREVIOUS</skipminus>
<forward>KEY_FASTFORWARD</forward>
<reverse>KEY_REWIND</reverse>
</remote>
</lircmap>


and this is what I get when I use putty --> irw (with the old lirc.conf); with the new one nothing happens.

73 0 KEY_VOLUMEUP devinput

(i pushed every button only one time)

ps: with an old lirc version in libreelec everything was fine.

I think you are on the wrong track, try setting up your remote like this http://nucblog.net/2014/01/mapping-the-b...e-control/
If I have helped you or increased your knowledge, click the 'thumbs up' button to give thanks :) (People with less than 20 posts won't see the "thumbs up" button.)

He's right.
Theres something wrong with lirc and Kodi 17.
Remote is working fine with v16.1 Jarvis.
After updating to 17 Krypton, only the left and right buttin on my remote are still working. No OK/Enter no Back....
Also checked with irw and the buttons are just not recognized anymore.
After that i tried to reprogram/remap my remote with the lirc version from Kodi 17 - no chance, just receiving errors

Went back to Jarvis and everything is fine.
Also reprograming/remapping wasn't a problem at all.

Please take a look on it. Smile
Thanks.

You have to rename some of the buttons. The new version of lirc in Krypton evidently does not read the old built in xml file.

change KEY_OK to KEY_ENTER
KEY_CHANNELUP to KEY_PAGEUP

ETC. You may need to create a new lircd.conf if some keys don't send anything, if they are not named in the lircd.conf they won't be recognized.

Some keys that used to be mapped don't work anymore at all. I have a 45 button Hauppauge remote, the GUIDE button used to send CONTEXTMENU but now irw does not recognize the key at all, so even though irrecord does see the key I can't remap it. instead I remapped the RADIO button to (KEYBOARD c) CONTEXTMENU.

UPDATE: I did manage to rename the guide key to KEY_CONTEXT_MENU and make it work. I don't know why it would not work before.

lircd.conf now lives in /.config. and you need to add the dtoverlay line in the config.txt (dtoverlay=lirc-rpi for a GPIO on a RPI).
