Ah, thanks, that took me one step forward. But nevertheless, it doesn't
(sry, but I've forgotten what the error message after killing lircd and
starting irrecord was). Therefore, I uninstalled lirc with aptitude and
tried to compile and install it myself. At first I had some troubles
with compiling lircd_gpio.c, but by following this howto from
ubuntuforums.org http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=288229 it
worked out pretty well. (I've downloaded pre3 instead of pre1, which was
used in this howto. Additionally I had to copy
for avoiding another compilation error. By typing "lircd" in the console
firstly and "irw" secondly, it recognised the buttons of the remote
control (Cool Command Y0400046) of my tv-card Leadtek WinFast 2000 XP.
Ok, so far, so good. Then I stopped lircd by typing "killall lircd" and
started irrecord ("irrecord bla"). I've tried all buttons on the Cool
Command first, but only the CH+/- and VOL+/- buttons seem to be
recognised by irrecord (but all buttons were recognised by irw...). The
other buttons make no dots on the console. Then I restarted irrecord and
tried my normal tv (from Medion) remote control. Irrecord recognises
none of the buttons of this remote control. It's the same with a remote
control of a Grundig-TV.
Hmm... I don't know, what I'm doing wrong. But the scenario as I
described in my previous post should be possible by using irrecord and a
Leadtek WinFast 2000 XP with the associated and attached ir-receiver,
PS: Acc. 3) After the reinstallation, "ls /dev/lirc*" shows "/dev/lirc
/dev/lirc0 /dev/lircd /dev/lircm", seems like the reinstallation was
necessary. Before the reinstallation, ls showed "/dev/lircd" only.
Acc. 5) The console responds to my Cool Command with the associated
codes. But the console doesn't respond to the other two remote controls.
