    [SOLVED] after a month remote died..cant fix it... help!

    Hi guys

    I have been using mythbuntu for a month and loving it. Today after a restart the remote stoped working. i tried changing batteries and a remote and IR receiver (i have 2 pvr 150 cards so i have an extra remote..) but nothing works. Lirc seems to be running when i use the dmesg | grep lirc command. The lircrc file is ok too. one thing is that when i use the irw command i get no response... can anyone point me towards some kind of solution...im totally stuck

    thx

    have you checked the cable?
    Is there a lirc device listed in /dev/ ?

    is the lircd.conf file loading properly?
    you could try issuing a
    Code:
    irsend LIST "" ""

    command, and it should list your remote as a device. If you used the mythbuntu Remote Control setup it should read 'irsend: hauppauge'.

    thx alot for the reply..im getting desprate here

    the cable is ok i checked with 2 diffrent cables.
    there is a lirc device listed in /dev/

    When i do the irsend LIST "" "" i see the remote (actually 4 types of hauppauge remotes but thats normal i guess) and it says 'irsend: hauppauge'.

    as far as i can tell the lircd.conf is working properly.

    anything else i should try?

    thx again in advance
