[LINUX] Asus Pundit P4-P5N9300 Media Center Remote Control and LIRC? - MP3HiFi - 2009-03-28 21:34
I bought an Asus Pundit with Onboard Nvidia 9300. XBMC is running quite well. Included is a remote that is called CIR.
In Ubuntu with lshal I figured out, that it is the following device.
udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pnp_ITE8713'
info.parent = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer' (string)
info.product = 'PnP Device (ITE8713)' (string)
info.subsystem = 'pnp' (string)
info.udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pnp_ITE8713' (string)
linux.hotplug_type = 2 (0x2) (int)
linux.subsystem = 'pnp' (string)
linux.sysfs_path = '/sys/devices/pnp0/00:09' (string)
pnp.id = 'ITE8713' (string)
Does anybody know how to integrate it with LIRC.
A request.... - SpearFish - 2009-04-07 17:58
I really do not have any answers to your questions.
However, you seem to at least have the initial setup to be able to solve one of my questions.
I wonder if there are any chances that you could remove the front panel of your P4-P5N9300 unit and photograph each angel of it.
Also, I am not getting any clear answers from Asus Website, about the eventual output possibillity for S-VHS. Can you answer if the unit comes "out of the box" with S-VHS output capabillity or not?
Appreciate your kind help,

Hi Spearfish, concerning to the photos I must say sorry. There is no VHS or SVHS output. Only VGA and HDMI.

Anybody else using the Pundit and have setup the remote.

It's not supported by Lirc according to comp.hardware.lirc message list it has IT8720F IR-receiver.
- MP3HiFi - 2009-04-17 21:12
I hope it is supported in future. I have read the post and it seems there is somebody testing it.
If I would be familar with programming in Linux and especially Lirc in combination with hardware programming I would try to make a new driver for Lirc, but it seems to be a hard challenge to archieve that goal.

I got this barebone as well. Any news regarding lirc support?
- nemo81 - 2009-07-16 16:00
Soo, is there any news on this?
I have absolutely no clue as to how to set this up myself.
I got the Pundit today, got everything working but it would be nice if the buildt in IR would work aswell..
(im probably gonna get a Logitech DiNovo Mini, and i will have to deal with that when that time comes, but for now id like the remote to work )
Thanks for any feedback!

I bought a P4-P5N9300 and I can make lirc working
you have to use lirc-0.8.6pre1.tar.bz2 and choose IT87 device
but now the problem - the remote is a mceusb like (for lircd.conf) and it works with irw or even irexec or irxevent
but it does not work with XBMC
I copied Lircmap.xml and remote.xml in good place (log file told me these files are loaded) but nothing works
gentoo x86 kernel 2.6.29-r5
XBMC SVN rev 21875
- darkattraction - 2009-07-27 21:13
Today I fixed 2 problems
- lirc: on gentoo, lirc creates a socket /var/run/lirc/lircd (irw read it too) and xbmc tries to read /dev/lircd socket
so I added in /etc/conf.d/lirc the option "-o /dev/lircd"
and I created a symlink /var/run/lirc/lircd to /dev/lircd as to check my remote with irw
- sound over hdmi: that worked but I can't fade music track (can't open audio device - dmix problem) and the solution is here http://www.xbmc.org/forum/showpost.php?p=259485&postcount=41
so if you want to use a pundit... go go and go
EDIT: my remote is an harmony 785
