    Remote issue: How to get the Imon-pad working?

    Hi all,

    I really like Mythbuntu! It installed flawlessly on my box the first time.Even the Imon vfd. So am really really happy with that. I have just one issue: the imon pad. Its not working. I currently made a workaround by using the buttons around the pad for up/down/left/right. It works but it is not ideal.

    I checked all the fora, but can´t find a ready solution. I checked http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php...PAD_Controller but unfortunately am not that good in Linux to give the patches a try. Basically I am scared that I break the working Lirc.

    Does anyone have a step-by-step guide on how to do this in mythbuntu?

    Thanks!

    I have the very same piece of hardware, and it worked flawlessly in Feisty, but somewhere along the way in Gutsy it went FUBAR. I have compiled from source and had some success, but I've not had the time to get a working setup. The Venky method seemed to work great, but now that support is supposedly in the stock LIRC its just refused to work for me. Same with the LCD.

    Ah, yes. Under Feisty I had it working also. But that was with an older MythTV version, and a lot of other problems.

    Under Feisty I used the stacktrace guide: http://stacktrace.org/index_html/200...the-debian-way and http://stacktrace.org/index_html/200...r-linux-2.6.19

    Not sure though how I should translate this to Mythbuntu. Hope someone does.

    Why is the pad functionality not included in the "standard" lirc driver?
    same goes for the Power button.
    Is there a good explanation for this? is somebody working on it? will it be part of some release?
    ...I'm not bitching - just plain curious...sorry
