    LIRC only works sometimes

    Hi,

    Sometimes my LIRC doesn't work. I have found out why, but I don't know how to fix it.

    It is because the event is seems to be assigned a event number randomly. Sometimes when I boot I get:

    /dev/input/by-path/pci-0000:00:0d.0--event-

    and sometimes when I reboot I get:

    /dev/input/by-path/pci-0000:00:0d.2--event-

    Note the difference between the 0 and 2 at the end.

    Is there someway I can always force it to be the same?

    Thanks
    -Chris

    Forgot to mention, the IR receiver is attached to my Leaktek Winfast DTV1000T DVB Card.

    You can adapt the procedure described at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...highlight=nova which is for the Nova-T 500 RC but I'm sure will apply equally to any RC which uses /dev/input.
