View Full Version : Hauppauge PVR250 lirc receiver not working

May 2nd, 2010, 01:34 PM
Hi folks

I just upgraded from hardy to lucid and my lirc receiver appears to be dead.

The hardware is a PVR250 (using the ivtv driver) and the lirc_dev and lirc_i2c modules are loaded fine. lircd is also running fine.

Using `irw` comes up with nothing so I tried using `mode2` and `irrecord` to get at the raw device and I still get nothing. It appears that the driver itself seems broken.

Anyone else had this? Or better still solved it!

This appears to be a known regression; see related post earlier at
the link above (all Hauppauge cards are affected).

Thanks for the link. I don't get the high CPU usage as reported in the forum post, but the bug report is spot on (lirc_i2c detecting a Leadtek)
