The link that Christoph provided actually contains 3
(THREE!) different configs for DViCO slimline/MCE
remotes. scroll-down. :-)
The first "begin remote" stanza (labeled 'DVICO") is
for the slimline/original remote, and was created by a guy called Chris
Pascoe who lives just across town from me.
The second and third "begin remote" stanza's are for
the "chunky" MCE remote. The second is a very "raw" config for
MCE who's origin i'm not aware of, and may/may not work -
The third "begin remote" stanza was created by me and my
MCE remote (with christoph's and others help to get a patch into irrecord
so that it would create it properly) , and has been used on at least 3
different MCE remotes that I'm personally aware of, and it works
to make sure we are on the same page..... my DViCO "Fusion MCE" Remote and USB
dongle look like the ones in these pictures - here's hoping yours does
Thanks for the response Christoph. The config you note is
included with the source for lirc and is what I tried as a first step to get
going. It is definately the config for the slimline remote, which I do not
have (and does not work with the remote I do have)
I have enabled debug
during configuration and get what looks like useful data being dumped with each
button push, however, I dont know how to turn that into a useful configuration
file manually. (Should I be concerned about a message that is also being dumped
as part of the debug output indicating something like 'Decoding of all remotes
failed' - even though there are also unique debug values corresponding with
different buttons being pushed being displayed.)

I am trying to get the supplied UltraView remote working on the frontend.
I am led to believe that the Ultraview / Dvico cards are/were offered
with two remotes. A slimish one, and a 'chunky' one. I have the chunky
one. I have read (perhaps erroneously) that this is an 'MCE' remote.
They appear to use the same USB receiver.
Sorry for the long post, but better too much info than too little I
spose... Can anyone help me here? Does it sound like just a wrong
lirc.conf file or something strange my remote is doing?
Try this config file:
If this does not help, you will have to create a config file manually by
compiling lircd with debug code and looking through the log files.
