My first post on this List.
I have a brand new Settop Box.
I have installed Linux+VDR and it works really fine for me.
BUT i have in heads problems with the Com + lirc.
It seams to me that the producer has disable the ComPorts. There is no
Com on the backside and only an intern com Port (called Com2) onboard.
But I can't any settings about the coms at the Bios.
"dmesg | grep ttyS"
shows me nothing. So it seams that linux didn't find any comPort.
cat /dev/ttyS0 oder 1 gives me an "cat: /dev/ttyS0: Input/output error"
I have tested it with my installed Debian and different Knoppix Versions.
I have loaded "modprobe generic_serial" and "modprobe serial_cs" by hand.
I have tested Kernel 2.6.8, 2.6.15 for Debian and the Knoppix Kernels.
On my other VDR System lirc runs very fine.
I hope that anybody knows how I can get the comPorts to work.
Please help! :-)
