You're the third now reporting this problem. Right after install my booting up stopped working too. So it has to have something to do with the driver!

I did not have any remote previously installed. Perhaps mceusb or what lirc is set to by default in xbmc-live. The strange thing is that it worked ONE time.
I had the asrock in suspended mode. And when i tried to start it again it didn't react on keyboard-presses. So I pushed the Power-button on the front of the Asrock and it woke up. But now the remote worked? After the next reboot it didn't anymore though.
This makes me think perhaps the driver or lirc-modules is loaded to early or wrong runlevel perhaps. I dont know. Or perhaps my IR-chip is defect. I dont really know anything about lirc so its hard to troubleshoot.

Sometimes I see a post in /var/log/messages about lirc_wb677_CIR activated/deactivated.
Can anyone with a working CIR please post some logs etc, see if they look the same?

Read my post here:
Ow, and It does work when you save the Wake on CIR setting in your bios, and then hold the off button on your Asrock after exiting the bios. You can now turn the Asrock on with the remote, but when you reboot it won't work anymore.

Another question. Were you guys able to POWER ON the Asrock via the remote? That should have nothing to do with the drivers imho, if the chip and bios is working, that should work out of the box?
- generator - 2009-12-22 13:54
Yes, it worked before. Somehow when the driver loads, it resets the setting in you bios.

Your power-on-trick worked for me generator. Then atleast the chip is not defect Doesnt work in linux though

Generator: Ok it works in linux now? This is strange. What I did was disable the CIR device in bios. Exit save. Enable CIR in bios, exit save. Power off. Power on with remote. And it seems to be working.
- generator - 2009-12-22 14:04
It only works once when you follow the steps. It gets reset when you start Ubuntu.
- keoma - 2009-12-22 14:06
Yes but my problem is the Enable CIR-device-setting seems to get disabled so the remote wont work at all unless I follow those steps?
- keoma - 2009-12-22 14:09
Also, the remote seems kinda buggy. I need to hold down the button for 1-2 seconds before the my button presses registers. Is this normal?
