View Full Version : 8.10 IR blaster setup for SciAtl boxes? Firewire on Rogers?

January 6th, 2009, 07:31 AM
Hi there,
I set up my Mythbuntu 8.10 with the IR blaster setting for MCEUSB with Scientific Atlanta cable boxes.

I can see two sets of codes for the remotes in the ~/.lirc/mythtv file, but I can't find other howtos or docs on what else I need to do to set it up.

It seems like I should need to configure a channel changer script or something, but I didn't see a really obvious match for my SA 4250HD.

As a bonus question, I'm on Rogers in Ottawa, Canada and wonder if I could use firewire instead to change channels. (I'm assuming Rogers wouldn't be so kind as to let us get video out of the firewire port.)

Any tips/pointers gratefully accepted.

I found the script I needed in LorenzoS' post over here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=914079

Just had to change the video device number and it seemed to work first time. It even checks to see if the 4250 is powered on first! Nice.
