We are excited to release new functionality to enable a 1-click import from Google Code onto the Allura platform on SourceForge. You can import tickets, wikis, source, releases, and more with a few simple steps. Read More
I tested lirc with a few programs (irw, xine, xbmc).
The problem is always the same, the remote control is working only a few
minutes after system start. The restart of the lirc daemon has no
effect. After system restart the remote control works again a few
minutes. Under Windows XP the remote control works fine, so there should
be no hardware failure.
GIGABYTE GA-790XTA-UD4, 4GB RAM, AMD Athlon II X2 250, 500 GB SATA HD,
FireDTV C/CI (DVB-C with IR-receiver SetTop-Box connected over FireWire),
Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala - kernel 2.6.32
lircd: version: 0.8.6, hardware.conf: see below; lircd.conf:
Because of changing input events I add the udev rule:
In the system log files are no entries for the time the remote control
lost connection. All I found is:
Feb 11 20:25:25 freevdr kernel: [ 6.057736] input: FireDTV remote
Feb 11 20:25:26 freevdr lircd-0.8.6: lircd(devinput) ready, using
Feb 11 20:25:26 freevdr lircd-0.8.6: accepted new client on
Feb 11 20:25:26 freevdr lircd-0.8.6: initializing '/dev/input/ir'
Feb 11 20:25:38 freevdr lircd-0.8.6: accepted new client on
I hope anyone can help me.
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE="Linux input layer (/dev/input/eventX)"
#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"
