Hi!

Thanks for a GREAT product. Installed Mythbuntu yesterday and except for some small glitches everything worked like a dream. :KS

One of the problems I encountered were that my MCE Remote (New model) didn't work. In my case I had to change /etc/lirc/hardware.conf to use /dev/lirc1in order to get the remote to work.
I guess the /dev/lirc0 is used for my Soundblaster X-Fi Remote (which I don't use).


It would be nice if the installer (or the ControlCenter) let the user select which remote to use.

I'm interested a little bit about this SB xi-fi remote coming up as lirc0. Do you by chance know what driver it uses?

You can checkout 'dmesg | grep lirc' to determine.


As for what lie to modify, modify

DEVICE=""

I will check this tonight when I get home.

axelsvag:
I edited the line
DEVICE=""
to
DEVICE="/dev/lirc1"
saved
and restarted lirc.

It is either my Soundblaster X-Fi or perhaps the VFD/Volume Knob in my Antec Fusion case?

Ah i see. Well an alternative solution will be to blacklist lirc_imon if you don't need it.

Am I right if I assume that the soundgraph have someting to do with the ANTEC FUSION. If I have understood my hardware in the case right it has one vfd/lcd and one ir receiver. Is it these that fool the lirc settings?
