Here you are:

Code:

# Arguments which will be used when launching lircd
REMOTE_LIRCD_ARGS=""

#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
#START_LIRCMD=false

#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
LOAD_MODULES=true

# Run "lircd --driver=help" for a list of supported drivers.
REMOTE_DRIVER=""
# If DEVICE is set to /dev/lirc and devfs is in use /dev/lirc/0 will be
# automatically used instead
REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/lirc0"
REMOTE_MODULES="lirc_dev lirc_mceusb"

# Default configuration files for your hardware if any
REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF="mceusb/lircd.conf.mceusb"
LIRCMD_CONF=""

Sure you can. You just have to append one more section "begin remote .... end remote" to /etc/lircd.conf. The section must define XBOX remote control and its codes. I'm sure you can get it from somewhere.

I tried this method and my remote does not work at all? I have a genuine Microsoft MCE Remote?

Hello,

This configuration seems to work with my Hauppauge RC6 remote..
[link to picture of the remote]
But, i have to use the tiny 'Enter-key' to select a menu in XBMC. (not so handy.. Smile )
The 'OK-key' and 'Back-key' don't do anything.

Now i want the 'OK-key' to do the same als the 'Enter-key' is doing now: selecting a menu like Video or Music in XBMC.

And i need the 'Back-key' to work.. but is doesn't work (yet).

Please help Smile thank you!

I had exactly the same problem. However I am using Ubuntu with XBMC-standalone on top. I logged into a Gnome session and downloaded the LIRC GUI config program (do a search for lirc in Ubuntu Software Center). Once installed I selected 'Windows Media Center Remote' and 'Custom receiver'.

Once done all the relevant buttons now work (including the back button). I have the AIM MCE remote. You may well find your remote and receiver listed in the config - if not just use Windows MCE. HTH.
