After a lot of testing, when this remote is paired with hidd, i get
nothing from the input device.
I successfully connected the remote with 'hidd --connect', and i can
see the buttons pressed using hcidump.
But It seems that theres no data coming from the coresponding
It seems the data coming from the BD remote is not recognized as a full
event message. -> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PlayStation/BDRemote
With hidd running an input device gets created, but nothing except a SYN event gets reported there (checked with evtest ).
This is because the HID descriptor does not define anything except an 11-byte data input package.
I use Debian SID with bluez-utils 3.36.
Did you really get the PS3 BD remote working with the input driver ?

Hi everybody !
I can't find any documentation about the lirc bluetooth driver.
I see there is a Ericsson bluetooth phone connecting to LIRC using the
BTE driver, and i would try to connect my
bluetooth PS3 BD Remote with this driver.
Ericsson BTE config :
Has someone some information about how to use this BTE driver, and how
to record the buttons ?
The PS3 Blu-ray remote is a Bluetooth input device. After pairing it
, use the input driver in LIRC to set it up.
Note that I'm not certain BlueZ 4.x supports the remote, at least I
haven't tested it yet.
