    9.10 RC + Antec Micro Fusion 350 (iMON)

    Hi all,

    I have been trying to get this combination to work for some time now. I have followed some guides but they appear to all be for 9.04. I will post the relevant information below:

    Basics:
    Code:
    owen@owen-htpc:~$ lsusb
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 005 Device 002: ID 15c2:0038 SoundGraph Inc. 
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 007: ID 1532:0007 Razer USA, Ltd DeathAdder Mouse
    Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0603:00f2 Novatek Microelectronics Corp. 
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04fc:0c25 Sunplus Technology Co., Ltd 
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 1a40:0101 TERMINUS TECHNOLOGY INC. 
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 14aa:0221 AVerMedia (again) or C&E AVermedia DVBT Tuner Dongle
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Code:
    owen@owen-htpc:~$ cat /proc/bus/usb/devices | grep -A 5 15c2
    P:  Vendor=15c2 ProdID=0038 Rev= 0.01
    C:* #Ifs= 2 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr=100mA
    I:* If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=03(HID  ) Sub=00 Prot=02 Driver=lirc_imon
    E:  Ad=81(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=   8 Ivl=10ms
    I:* If#= 1 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=03(HID  ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=lirc_imon
    E:  Ad=82(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS=   8 Ivl=10ms
    So we can see the correct driver is being loaded instead of usbhid.

    Code:
    owen@owen-htpc:~$ ls /dev/ | grep lir
    lirc0
    lircd
    owen@owen-htpc:~$ ls /dev/ | grep lc
    lcd0
    Here is where I am confused. All of the guides for 9.04 talk about having to run two instances of lirc for the two devices present to combine them into the one device - 9.10 seems to have already sorted that out for us?

    When I use irw it responds with absolutely nothing at all. And the strangest part is this:

    Code:
    owen@owen-htpc:~$ perl -e 'print pack "H*", "80000000091e0088"' > /dev/lcd0
    bash: /dev/lcd0: Permission denied
    owen@owen-htpc:~$ sudo perl -e 'print pack "H*", "80000000091e0088"' > /dev/lcd0
    bash: /dev/lcd0: Permission denied
    BUT with the following configurations:

    LCDd.conf
    Code:
    # LCDd.conf -- configuration file for the LCDproc server daemon LCDd
    #
    # This file contains the configuration for the LCDd server.
    # 
    # The format is ini-file-like. It is divided into sections that start at
    # markers that look like [section]. Comments are all line-based comments,
    # and are lines that start with '#' or ';'.
    #
    # The server has a 'central' section named [server]. For the menu there is
    # a section called [menu]. Further each driver has a section which
    # defines how the driver acts.
    #
    # The drivers are activated by specifiying them in a driver= line in the
    # server section, like:
    #
    #   Driver=curses
    #
    # This tells LCDd to use the curses driver.
    # The first driver that is loaded and is capable of output defines the
    # size of the display. The default driver to use is curses.
    # If the driver is specified using the -d <driver> command line option,
    # the Driver= options in the config file are ignored.
    #
    # The drivers read their own options from the respective sections.
    
    
    
    ## Server section with all kinds of settings for the LCDd server ##
    [server]
    
    # Where can we find the driver modules ?
    # IMPORTANT: Make sure to change this setting to reflect your
    #            specific setup! Otherwise LCDd won't be able to find
    #            the driver modules and will thus not be able to
    #            function properly.
    # NOTE: Always place a slash as last character !
    DriverPath=/usr/lib/lcdproc/
    
    # Tells the server to load the given drivers. Multiple lines can be given.
    # The name of the driver is case sensitive and determines the section
    # where to look for further configuration options of the specific driver
    # as well as the name of the dynamic driver module to load at runtime.
    # The latter one can be changed by giving af File= directive in the
    # driver specific section.
    #
    # The following drivers are supported:
    #   bayrad, CFontz, CFontz633, CFontzPacket, curses, CwLnx, ea65, 
    #   EyeboxOne, g15, glcdlib, glk, hd44780, icp_a106, imon, imonlcd, IOWarrior,

    #ScrollUpKey=Up
    #ScrollDownKey=Down
    
    # If you have only 4 keys, you can choose to use this:

    # Set the disc mode [legal: 0=spin the "slim" disc - two disc segments,
    # 1=their complement spinning; default: 0]
    #DiscMode=0
    
    # EOF
    (irrelevant driver sections omitted)

    When I select Driver=curses I get the ugly time printout, and when I select Driver=imonlcd I get the ServerScreen with the heartbeat etc.

    What version of myth are you running? Do you have the LCD panel or the VFD one?

    It's Myth 0.22 I believe, and I have the LCD panel.

    And now that I've rebooted the system, I am getting a pretty time printout.

    When I boot up I get LCD Proc Svr and CLI:0 SCR:0 on my LCD panel, when it gets into myth after about 10 seconds the display shows date and time and then when I move around the menus (eg watch tv, recordings etc) it will show these on the LCD panel. I guess you have gone into tv settings and enabled the LCD? I cannot remember the exact menu option, I replied to another posting on imon with the menu option.
