[LINUX] HOW-TO configure Soundgraph iMON VFD/IR Receiver (used by many HTPC chassis)
#16
Doxic Wrote:I can't get over the first step... my "cat /proc/usb/devices" shows this information



so I altered my /etc/modprobe.d/usbhid to the following


but the result is still the same (after "depmod -ae" and "update-initramfs -u"), the driver section shows Driver=usbhid. I installed the XBMC Live (Ubuntu 8.04, 2.6.24-19-generic)

Can anyone help me?

The update-initramfs command didnt work for me, I guess the livecd boot stuff is slighly different (using live usb also). I ended up creating an rc.local file in /etc with all the commands the original post suggested having in crontab + a few additionals.
The first line makes sure usbhid is loaded and actually reading the options from /etc/modprobe.d/usbhid
The second loads lirc_imon
The rest is more or less the same as the original post had in crontab.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
/sbin/rmmod usbhid && /sbin/modprobe usbhid
/sbin/modprobe lirc_imon
/usr/local/sbin/lircd --driver=default --device=/dev/lirc0 --pidfile=/var/run/lirc0.pid --listen=8765
/usr/local/sbin/lircd --driver=default --device=/dev/lirc1 --pidfile=/var/run/lirc1.pid --output=/dev/lircd --connect=localhost:8765
/bin/chmod 777 /dev/lcd0

Oh yeah, dont forget to chmod +x /etc/rc.local

This helped me also, or it might have something to do with moving the --connect localhost:8765 last instead like this:
Code:
/usr/local/sbin/lircd --driver=default --device=/dev/lirc0 --pidfile=/var/run/lirc0.pid --listen=8765 /etc/rm200d1.conf
/usr/local/sbin/lircd --driver=default --device=/dev/lirc1 --pidfile=/var/run/lirc1.pid --output=/dev/lircd /etc/rm200d2.conf --connect=localhost:8765
chmod 777 /dev/lcd0
/usr/local/sbin/LCDd

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 with xbmc from the repo and a Antec Fusion Remote Black with the RM200 remote (using Logitech Harmony 555 with custom button setup now) btw..

Can someone explain why following these instructions corrupted my video drivers?.

Also

Code:
sudo /etc/modprobe.d/usbhid

This folder doesn't exist on my system.?

Can't get LCD or remote working with these instructions.

Very frustrating.No

Hey cougar, I got the exact same error. It seems the newest CVS build gives a load of problems using the commands in this guide. You should look for an older version. For me the version on Ron Frazier's site worked as a charm!

edit: On 2nd thought, this one doesn't work either. Is there any one with enough linuxpowah to create a patch? Else we'll just have to wait. ought, this one doesn't work either. Is there any one with enough linuxpowah to create a patch? Else we'll just have to wait.

A little update on my compilingadventures:
Hello, I'm currently running hardy with 2.6.24-23-server kernel.
If I download the snapshot source and compile with driver config imon_lcd everything seems to go smooth. However when I try to load the module something goes wrong:
Code:
sudo mount -t usbfs none /proc/bus/usb
sudo cat /proc/bus/usb/devices
Gives me this output before modprobing:
Code:
T:  Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=04 Cnt=02 Dev#=  4 Spd=1.5 MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 1.10 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=15c2 ProdID=0038 Rev= 0.02
C:* #Ifs= 2 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr=100mA
I:* If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=03(HID  ) Sub=00 Prot=02 Driver=(none)
E:  Ad=81(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=   8 Ivl=10ms
I:* If#= 1 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=03(HID  ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=(none)
E:  Ad=82(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=   8 Ivl=10ms
Next step:
Code:
sudo modprobe lirc_imon
dmesg | grep lirc
Gives following output:
Code:
[  591.360739] lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, at major 61
[  591.377477] /build/buildd/linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-2.6.24/debian/build/build-server/media/lirc/lirc_imon/lirc_imon.c: Driver for Soundgraph iMON MultiMedian IR/VFD, v0.3

[  591.377554] usbcore: registered new interface driver lirc_imon
When I check the usb devices again tho i get this:
Code:
T:  Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=04 Cnt=02 Dev#=  4 Spd=1.5 MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 1.10 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs=  1

E:  Ad=82(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=   8 Ivl=10ms
The driver is still (none)

I think something is broken in the CVS tree for device 0038! Sad Anyone still has an old snapshot? Nerd

tiburcillo you on xbmc live ?

No, I'm running an Ubuntu Hardy setup. Don't know if it works on xbmc live. Huh

I followed the guide on page one, but unfortunately this won't work with xbmc live... I also use an antec case (antec fusion remote black) and I even bought a mce remote (as I thought it would work out of the box, silly me) but I can't get it to work...

anyone was lucky enough to get a similar configuration to work under xbmc live? thank you
