    Lirc problems with media center usb remote

    On new installation of natty remote sends double keypresses.
    It worked fine with maverick.

    To fix it I have to run following manually after each boot:

    Code:
    modprobe -r rc_rc6_mce
    modprobe -r ir_rc5_decoder
    modprobe -r ir_rc6_decoder
    Blacklisting these modules has no effect. They are being loaded anyways.

    Could you give me any suggestion on how to fix it?

    Re: Lirc problems with media center usb remote

    Hi everyone,
    I am hoping for any hint or suggestion...

    I found out after some searching that the module for media center remote is now included in the natty's kernel.

    I would like to understand why blacklisted modules are beeing loaded and how to prevent it from happening.

    What does the blacklist file you created look like?

    Thank you for replying cariboo907.

    I added 3 lines at the end of /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    Code:
    blacklist rc_rc6_mce
    blacklist ir_rc5_decoder
    blacklist ir_rc6_decoder
    I think this is the proper way to do it...

    I am having this problem too. I am running Mythbuntu 11.04 beta 2, and my MCE remote keeps repeating the input for the arrow keys.

    Per the OP and the mythTV MCE wiki running
    Code:
    modprobe -r ir_rc6_decoder
    fixes the problem. However, like the OP, when I try to blacklist the module in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, it still loads the module on reboot.

    The correct fix for this in Natty is this:

    Code:
    echo lirc > /sys/class/rc/rc0/protocols
    Just add that line to /etc/rc.local and it will be done at boot. Blacklisting the modules doesn't work because they're loaded in from inside the kernel.
