@ Evin

I don't believe you should be doing
Code:
sudo su

On Ubuntu su is used to elevate the existing user to admin. Alternately, if you chose not to use sudo (you did not disable root) in the installation, then you would need to do su at a terminal to switch to the root user account.

I can post my 880 codes too except I don't know which are "extra" buttons and which are needed/used by XBMC.

I am having this weird problem where depending how I setup the activity (play game, play dvd, watch my videos), I get different buttons on the LCD screen. What did you use as your "Activity" setup hogfan?

i have the harmony one remote
this setup didnt work for me
when running irw i get the following on a certain button press:

Code:
000000037ff07bb2 00 BB2 mceusb

i then go to /usr/share/lirc/remotes/mceusb/lircd.conf.mceusb and already see BB2 defined there
Code:
#bb2 - bb4 unused
        BB2           0x00007bb2
        BB3           0x00007bb3
        BB4           0x00007bb4

then i go to the /usr/share/xbmc/system/Lircmap.xml file and set
Code:
<obc117>BB2</obc117>

then in the remote.xml and add the following right under global and <FullscreenVideo>

Code:
<universalremote>
        <obc117>ShowSubtitles</obc117>
    </universalremote>

test the button when viewing a movie and subtitles dont toggle

what am i missing here?

sudo mode2 -r -d /dev/lirc0

I am getting the following error:

mode2: error opening /dev/lirc0
mode2: No such file or directory

and that device does not exist.

I got the same problem! I use an ION based board (asus at3n) and the remote of an old ati theater 550 tuner like this The remote has an usb receiver wich is work well with the base function (left right up down ok=enter playing navigates, volume up down etc.) without lirc too. I can use it with a basic desktop ubuntu too, so I think it's independent of the lirc. Lsusb output is:

Code:
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0766:0204 Jess-Link Products Co., Ltd

I tried with "irw", and it works but almost all of the buttons have the same output :ˇ@

So, the question is: what I use, as the name of the device in the begining
lirc.conf and why Ihave no /dev/lirc0 No any idea??

Sorry for my bad english!

Hi,

I have lircd.conf file set with the codes from the first page.
I started irw and it takes me to a blank line. I am using an actual xbox 360 dvd remote that looks like this and a usbuirt.
When I press a button on the remote after entering irw, I do not get any codes. The light on the usbuirt flashes, but no codes.

Any suggestions?

frustrated is the word..

Does anyone have a hardware.conf and lircd.conf they would be willing to share so i can use it as a template.

Someone using a harmony and a usbuirt.

Thanks!

Will the below work for plugging the XBOX IR dongle into my PC? I'm having problems with the website suggested on the first page:
