What I tried to say is that if there is a program that can retrieve concrete and repeatable value from the remote control, why can't irrecord capture this information (if what I was doing was correct).

When I look at /proc/bus/input/devices, there are only 6 entries. Most of them are obviously not for the remote. I have tried another one, and it doesn't produce anything.

Thank you for the link. I'll try with this one and see how it goes. The reason I try to generate the file is because I have a file similar to this, that works with another remote control. However, that file doesn't work with this one. The other remote control is also a USB, dev/input device. Since irw prints out output when I press the remote, I reasoned that the lircd.conf may be wrong.
