Hmm, not sure. This doesn't seem quite right ??

Nope, should look something like this:

Code:
sudo ir-keytable -r
scancode 0x800f7400 = KEY_NUMERIC_0 (0x200)
scancode 0x800f7401 = KEY_NUMERIC_1 (0x201)
scancode 0x800f7402 = KEY_NUMERIC_2 (0x202)
scancode 0x800f7403 = KEY_NUMERIC_3 (0x203)
...
scancode 0x800f7465 = KEY_POWER2 (0x164)
scancode 0x800f746e = KEY_PLAYPAUSE (0xa4)
scancode 0x800f746f = KEY_MEDIA (0xe2)
scancode 0x800f7480 = KEY_BRIGHTNESSDOWN (0xe0)
scancode 0x800f7481 = KEY_PLAYPAUSE (0xa4)
Enabled protocols: RC-6

I.e. it should just display the table you imported. For some reason this is messed up in your case. Unfortunately I don't have any clue what the problem might be. Could you try to create another file without a comment and without a newline anywhere? So not even an enter after that line.

Did you happen to create your file in Windows and then uploaded it or did you create this file directly (via a shell editor)? I'm asking because ir-keymap seems to be unusually picky about its syntax. Maybe it doesn't like Windows newlines.

Or what if you try it without a config file:

Code:
ir-keytable -c -p RC6 -k 0x800f740b=KEY_ENTER -t

Also, what kernel do you run? You should at least run 2.6.38 if you have an mceusb receiver.

Big thumbs up on this extensive and educational guide!

If I ever have to set everything up again I will for sure make use of it. Right now I'm only using the kernel driver and do the rest in keyboard.xml and gnome keyboard shortcuts(I'm running xbmc on to of metacity). Your guide provides a much cleaner and more generic way though.

Read my guide, it looks like you're missing the protocol in the config file.

Code:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `xbmc_%`.* TO 'xbmc'@'%';
IF you have a mysql problem, find one of the 4 dozen threads already open.

The protocol can also be defined with the -p switch. Defining the protocol in the config file is not a requirement. It's purely for convenience (and auto configuration).

The symptoms also do not indicate that there's any problem with the protocol. Both ir-keytable and ir-keytable -r indicate that RC6 is being used, which is the correct protocol for an MCE remote. If there was a protocol problem ir-keytable -t shouldn't register anything at all, or maybe faulty codes likes my Bravia remote on the RC5 protocol instead of Sony. But it does register the events properly.

The problem is that the mapping table for some reason doesn't get loaded into memory properly.

Ok, something definitely seems to be wrong my ir-keytable loading the keymap into memory

I'm running 2.6.38 kernel

Quote:root@Gaia:/# uname -r
2.6.38-8-generic

ir-keytable is latest version in repo

Quote:apt-get install ir-keytable
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
ir-keytable is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

using the -k parameter returns an error

Quote:ir-keytable -c -p RC-6 -k 0x800f7422=KEY_OK -t
Invalid parameter(s)
ir-keytable: -k: (PROGRAM ERROR) Option should have been recognized!?
Try `ir-keytable --help' or `ir-keytable --usage' for more information.

the -w command is being read somehow at least

Quote:root@Gaia:/# ir-keytable -c
Old keytable cleared
root@Gaia:/# ir-keytable -r
Enabled protocols: RC-6
root@Gaia:/# ir-keytable -c -p RC-6 -w /etc/rc_keymaps/finaltest

Wrote 3 keycode(s) to driver
Protocols changed to RC-6
root@Gaia:/# ir-keytable -r
scancode 0x7fffffff = KEY_DOWN (0x6c)
Enabled protocols: RC-6

I created a new keymap using nano on the machine called finaltest with the UP, DOWN and OK buttons but still nothing.

Quote:root@Gaia:/# cat /etc/rc_keymaps/finaltest
# table mce-final
0x800f741e KEY_UP
0x800f7422 KEY_OK
0x800f741f KEY_DOWN

root@Gaia:/#

tried it with and without a new line at the end of the file. No luck

Any ideas ? I don't think it would matter if I had another remote to try as ir-keytable is not loading any file.

I don't think it would matter either.

Strange that -k doesn't work. May be the cause. Could you give me the output of the following code:

Code:
ir-keytable -V && ir-keytable -v && apt-cache show ir-keytable

Also, try running

Code:
ir-keytable -c -p RC-6 -w /etc/rc_keymaps/finaltest -v

Description: Alter keymaps of Remote Controller devices
This package allows to change the keymap of controller receivers.
Those receivers are found as infrared receivers on DVB sticks or on
framegrabber cards. Via ir-keytable the mapping from a scancode to
the generated event can be customized and made persistent.

Well that looks ok (except the last past). The last thing you could try that I can think of is to uninstall/purge lirc-modules-source and then reboot, because you still have some lirc stuff in your lsmod.

That's the only difference between your situation and mine that I can see (not that my remote didn't work while some lirc stuff was loaded, but ok). And that I run linux-image-2.6.38-8-server (AMD64) instead of linux-image-2.6.38-8-generic (i386), but that shouldn't really make a difference. You could submit a bugreport clearly outlining the steps, the expected result and the realized result.

Sorry I wasn't able to help you.

Thanks, I really appreciate the help.

I'll try doing the purge and fingers crossed. I'm also going to see if I can borrow a new receiver and remote off a friend too see if that helps at all

Thanks again for the guide and the help

Hi,
I'm experiencing the same thing than gazrat. I recently bought a origen ae m10 with an imon vfd/ir display an rushing through various installations since then, starting with debian and now struggling with natty.
Since I tried 64 as well as 32 bit natty I can say, they behave differently at some points (by the way upstart is annoying, it drives me crazy, since errors appear and dissappear randomly): Where in natty amd64 ir-keytable can load a table without problems into the driver, the i386 version fails for me.
I guess it's either the kernel module or ir-keytable which has some sort of overflow in the variable that stores the key-code since my remote produces two groups of codes:
0x020000XX - they seem to get to the driver.
0x800ff4XX - they're all replaced with 7fffffff when ir-keytable tries to load them into the driver.
And as I said: In natty amd64 ir-keytable worked - except - lcdproc seems to have problems with the new imon module, but thats another problem and the same in i386.
I've tried to use the old lirc modules build from lirc-modules-source (forced install, since the kernel version is newer, but doesn't support the display). Lcdproc works just fine with the old lirc_imon module but lirc doesn't receive anything from the remote. Since I took the ubuntu sources of lirc and build them for debian squeeze (lirc in squeeze is awfully old) and the just worked with debians 2.6.32 amd64 kernel and I used the same config, the problem is likely between the newer kernel and the old module - so dead end here.

Does anybody know if it's possible to nest actions in Remote.xml? What I want is to have an alternate action for pressing the "Guide" button when i'm fullscreen in Mytv. But not when i'm playing a DVD. Is this even possible?

I would imagine i could use something as this:
Code:
<keymap>
...
<MyTV>
    <remote>
      <clear>Delete</clear>
    </remote>
    <FullscreenVideo>
      <remote>
        <title>XBMC.ActivateWindow(PVROSDGuide)</title>
        <recordedtv>XBMC.ActivateWindow(Teletext)</recordedtv>
      </remote>
    </FullscreenVideo>
  </MyTV>
</keymap>

Hello again,
using the old lirc modules wasn't a dead end at all, there was just a change in the ir-codes I can't explain, since everything (except the kernel) is almost the same. I stil got output with cat /dev/lirc0 | xxd so I tried other lircd.conf files

The following should not keep any suprises, but maybe someone find's it usefull anyways.

What I did:

blacklist the new event modules for rc devices in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-rc.conf:
Quote:blacklist rc_core
blacklist rc_imon_pad
blacklist imon
blacklist ir_lirc_codec
blacklist ir_sony_decoder
blacklist ir_jvc_decoder
blacklist ir_rc6_decoder
blacklist ir_rc5_decoder
blacklist ir_nec_decoder

I also was used to hide the usb device from usbhid, but since there are other drivers for that device in the kernel, it's not necessary anymore, but if someone is using an older kernel without those event rc modules it might be usefull to create a file /etc/modprobe.d/usbhid-imon.conf with the following (maybe you have to adjust your usb-id, use lsusb -v):
Quote:options usbhid quirks=0x15c2:0x0036:0x0004

next pass the right module options to lirc_imon in /etc/modprobe.d/lirc_imon.conf (the display_type 1 is vfd, ir_protocol 1 is RC-6):
Quote:options lirc_imon display_type=1 ir_protocol=1

install lirc:
Quote:aptitude install lirc

in the package setup I chose
Quote:Remote Control configuration: Soundgraph iMON IR/LCD
IR transmitter, if present: None

the resulting hardware.conf:
Quote:# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
#
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE="Soundgraph iMON IR/LCD"
REMOTE_MODULES="lirc_dev lirc_imon"
REMOTE_DRIVER=""
REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/lirc0"
REMOTE_SOCKET=""
# I don't know why a cfg file is given here, I think it's ignored
# maye its used if /etc/lirc/lircd.conf doesn't exist
REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF="imon/lircd.conf.imon"
REMOTE_LIRCD_ARGS=""

#Chosen IR Transmitter
TRANSMITTER="None"
TRANSMITTER_MODULES=""
TRANSMITTER_DRIVER=""
TRANSMITTER_DEVICE=""
TRANSMITTER_SOCKET=""
TRANSMITTER_LIRCD_CONF=""
TRANSMITTER_LIRCD_ARGS=""

#Enable lircd
START_LIRCD="true"

#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
START_LIRCMD="false"

#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
LOAD_MODULES="true"

# Default configuration files for your hardware if any
LIRCMD_CONF=""

#Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration
#If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application
#that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive
#frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER
#It will then populate all other variables without any user input
#If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure
#to leave this set to "false"
FORCE_NONINTERACTIVE_RECONFIGURATION="false"

end remote
The first codes are the ones I used to get from my remote, the second set are the codes I get now and I don't have a clue why the changed. As you can see: They're almost the same, except the trailing 00002ae or 00000000 at the end.

By the way: Does anyone know why irrecord does not work with the imon devices?

Now I installed the old modules:
Quote:aptitude install lirc-modules-source
at this point dkms refuses to install lirc_imon since the kernel version is newer. Thats right, but it doesn't support my imon display anymore, so I forced the installation:
Quote:dkms uninstall -m lirc -v 0.8.7
dkms install -m lirc -v 0.8.7 --force

now a fast:
Quote:depmod -a
update-initramfs -u
to ensure that all modifications to the module config will be considered

With the old lirc_imon driver lcdproc works without problems, no stall of xbmc to loss of contact to the display, as you can observe in syslog after a while.

If <MyTV> is a valid section I don't think it matters whether you override setting from remote.xml or keyboard.xml.

I'm experiencing the same thing than gazrat. I recently bought a origen ae m10 with an imon vfd/ir display an rushing through various installations since then, starting with debian and now struggling with natty.
Since I tried 64 as well as 32 bit natty I can say, they behave differently at some points (by the way upstart is annoying, it drives me crazy, since errors appear and dissappear randomly): Where in natty amd64 ir-keytable can load a table without problems into the driver, the i386 version fails for me.
I guess it's either the kernel module or ir-keytable which has some sort of overflow in the variable that stores the key-code since my remote produces two groups of codes:
0x020000XX - they seem to get to the driver.
0x800ff4XX - they're all replaced with 7fffffff when ir-keytable tries to load them into the driver.
And as I said: In natty amd64 ir-keytable worked - except - lcdproc seems to have problems with the new imon module, but thats another problem and the same in i386.
I've tried to use the old lirc modules build from lirc-modules-source (forced install, since the kernel version is newer, but doesn't support the display). Lcdproc works just fine with the old lirc_imon module but lirc doesn't receive anything from the remote. Since I took the ubuntu sources of lirc and build them for debian squeeze (lirc in squeeze is awfully old) and the just worked with debians 2.6.32 amd64 kernel and I used the same config, the problem is likely between the newer kernel and the old module - so dead end here.
Thank you for testing! So I guess there's a bug in the i386 version of ir-keytable that prevents some scancodes from getting loaded properly. I'll see if I can submit a proper bug report.

Also thanks for your LIRC guide. Yes, I think the problems were caused by the newer kernel. As I stated in my first post >=2.6.33 and LIRC do not really go hand in hand without some measures (like blacklisting).
