HP MCE Remote kit on Dharma Live
#1
So I bought this remote kit off ebay.

Image

figured it would just be prug n pray with Dharma Live on my Acer Revo 3610,
but I get nothing, no response at all.

I've found countless threads on setting up remotes but each seems to be totally different and very long.

opinions?

thanks!

ok removed the /etc/lirc directory and then reinstalled lirc again.

sudo apt-get install lirc

sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc
during reconfigure I picked Windows Media Center remotes /all
and for transceiver I selected none.

invoke-rc.d lirc stop
lircd -n -d /dev/lirc0 /usr/share/lirc/remotes/mceusb/lircd.conf.mceusb

In another window
irw.

Try:
Code:
lsusb

This should list up all connected usb peripheral that is connected and
detected. Does it list your HP IR reciever ?

I have a xbox usb dongle and i have from lsusb:
Code:
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 045e:0284 Microsoft Corp. Xbox DVD Playback Kit
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

So this should be the first thing you should verify.

Doing
Code:
irw
Should give you output in terminal window when you press keys on your remote. If not then something is wrong with your setup, either distro,kernel or lirc.

whats your output on these:
Code:
cat /etc/issue

Code:
uname -r
PointOfView Nvidia ION Atom 330 - TRANSCEND 2GB DDR2 DIMM 800MHz - G.SKILL 64GB SSD 2.5

I'd like to add my frustration in adding a Rosewill RRC-126 to my new HTPC running XBMC Live 10.0. I've succeeded in messing things up so badly I had to reinstall, so I'd like to avoid doing that again if at all possible. Wink Here's what I can tell you so far:

lsusb does detect my device as a Formosa Industries Corporation device, but that device is not listed in the lirc configuration file under devices (the vendor is, however, and there are a couple of older(?) devices listed). I tried to add my device and reinstall the lirc package, but that generated errors on the build related to a missing kernel source that I was unable to resolve, and trying to reinstall a new kernel caused even more issues. I feel that this problem would be solved if I had been able to rebuild my lirc and install it, but the kernel issue is new to me, and I haven't had any success finding anyone with a similar problem. I've tried every solution I can find for the kernel problem, but all attempts result in errors (sudo make oldconfig, etc.).

I hope someone can help me add my device and reinstall lirc, because once I get past that, I think I'll be in business!

Thanks in advance,
-z

PS: If this counts as hijacking the thread, I apologize in advance and will repost to a new topic, just let me know!

its cool. I'm leaning towards a fresh install of Dharma just because who knows what i've changed and what I've messed up.

then once I'm fresh I can follow some correct steps and not just poke about hoping for some result.
