[LINUX] HOW-TO configure Soundgraph iMON VFD/IR Receiver (used by many HTPC chassis)
#85
This case has the same hardware built in (id 0038). It came with lcd + buttons panel + ir receiver in the case and the imon-pad remote (aka R200). I - like many others, as it appears - had a hard time making this hardware work properly, but now it's all working. I used lots of sources - starting from this thread, but something was always not working. I traced the source of information back to http://www.ronfrazier.net/mythtv/. In the end, my working variation was: use the official lirc sources from lirc.org (v. 0.8.4a) and apply ronfrazier's patch to lirc_imon.c before compiling. BUT making a manual patch and only of a few parts of the patch, the most important parts being the buffer size (4 -> 8) and the function to map the pad's coordinates to only four buttons up-down-left-right. (Note: I avoided using lirc_modules_source because I found it a...buggy pain in the Angry)
All the other variations of howto's I've read did not work. The reason is that my case has some small differences in the codes it uses. Basically the confs I created with irrecord resulted in files very similar to ronfrazier's, but DIFFERENT: the original thermaltake panel conf for example was:
Code:
begin remote

  name  Thermaltake_DH-101
  bits           40
  eps            30
  aeps          100

  one             0     0
  zero            0     0
  post_data_bits  24
  post_data      0x1EE
  gap          123998

      begin codes
          iMEDIAN                  0x000000000F
          AppExit                  0x000000002B
          Escape                   0x0000000017
          Up                       0x0000000012
          Enter                    0x0000000016
          Start                    0x000000002C
          Menu                     0x000000002D
...

Ok, see that post_data 0x1EE? Mine has a 0x2EE instead Oo
The main lircd conf was
Code:
begin remote

  name  imon_pad
  bits           64
  eps            30
  aeps          100

  one             0     0
  zero            0     0
  post_data_bits  0
  post_data      0x0
  gap          139998

      begin codes
          AppExit                  0x288195B700000101
          Power                    0x289115B700000101
          Record                   0x298115B700000101
          Play                     0x2A8115B700000101
          Open                     0x29B195B700000101
          Rewind                   0x2A8195B700000101
          Pause                    0x2A9115B700000101
          FastForward              0x2B8115B700000101
....
See that 101 at the end? Mine has 201 EekShockedOoConfused

If someone's interested, I may post my complete files, but before doing that, I still have a problem/question: the panel's buttons are too fast. Using irw I get a minimum repetition of 3 each time I push.
Question: can this be handled?
If so: in the lircd.conf?
In xbmc directly?

Thanks,
rickx
