Question  [LINUX] Asrock remote with Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty)
Post: #1
Hi,

With the latest Ubuntu (11.04 beta1) the Asrock remote now works out of the box, no LIRC needed anymore (yeah!)

However, only a few buttons on the remote are recognized. Does anybody know how to configure XBMC to use the right keymap in Ubuntu 11.04?

run lirc-0.9.0 with devinput config, then it should work. a really great alternative is using eventlircd.

Dion71, could you please post your Lircmap.xml? I don't get my remote to work at all after upgrade to 11.04.

I tried in XBMC 10.1 with no user-configured Lircmap.xml, only the default in /usr/share/..

Remote only works with ir-keytable but that's it AFAIK.

$ sudo chmod 666 /dev/input/event4
$ ir-keytable
Found /sys/class/rc/rc0/ (/dev/input/event4) with:
Driver nuvoton-cir, table rc-rc6-mce
Supported protocols: NEC RC-5 RC-6 JVC SONY LIRC
Enabled protocols: NEC RC-5 RC-6 JVC SONY LIRC
Repeat delay = 500 ms, repeat period = 33 ms

$ ir-keytable -t
Testing events. Please, press CTRL-C to abort.
1304107612.390362: event MSC: scancode = 800f241f
1304107612.513385: event MSC: scancode = 800f241f
1304107613.161091: event MSC: scancode = 800f241e
1304107613.284564: event MSC: scancode = 800f241e
1304107613.706064: event MSC: scancode = 800f241f
1304107613.829108: event MSC: scancode = 800f241f
1304107614.138192: event MSC: scancode = 800f241e
1304107614.261659: event MSC: scancode = 800f241e

(those events are generated when pressing buttons on the remote)
