I now have Lirc installed and configured on my new Onieric XBMC installation with Eden nightlies and have restored all my backed up config files to the appropriate locations. However the remote is not yet working. So I did some investigation.
Whenever I do a:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0d8c:0103 C-Media Electronics, Inc. CM102-A+/102S+ AudiController
[b]Bus 002 Device 003: ID 045e:0284 Microsoft Corp. Xbox DVD Playback Kit[/b]
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 046d:c517 Logitech, Inc. LX710 Cordless Desktop Laser
So as you can see the Xbox DVD dongle is showing up.
Now on to step 2...........my Lirc hardware.conf file looks like this:
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE="XBOX DVD Playback Kit"
#Chosen IR Transmitter
#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
# Default configuration files for your hardware if any
#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"
Lirc is successfully starts and is running, but it doesn't appear to be loading lirc_ati usb because I am not able to see /dev/lirc0. Anybody have any ideas on how to troubleshoot why lirc_atiusb is not loading? Any help appreciated.
