I have managed to install an ir receiver in a rpi and configure lirc to use the TV's (samsung 40") remote.
I am trying to do the same with my main htpc that is also running openelec.

I can program it using irconfig, all fine. What doesn't work is irw (which always seemed to work in my rpi). That's what tricks me that it reads the signals when I program it but irw doesn't produce any output. Any thoughts?
The remote is a samsung aa59-00507a

I have fixed a similar issue with same wifi dongle and rpi B using a simple USB extension cable.
Before it wasn't possible to obtain a reliable network connection, now it works fine. (really better, but I'm not watching HD content)
Dongle is now far from rpi and power supply. (2A)
I'm using too a Flirc dongle.

Average download speed on my configuration (using ssh) : 1700 kb/s (OpenElec 4.2.1)

This works for me :
create an empty file called : /storage/.config/modprobe.d/lirc_rpi.conf
in this file, add this line :
options lirc_rpi gpio_in_pull=0
then reboot and the remote works again

This is a URC brand control system... I went through their database of MCE commands (they have quite a few codesets for MCE, Xbox, etc.), and while their sorting is rather messy, I took the time to map out every command that IRW responded to.

If I wanted to, I could take the master Microsoft list of MCE commands and generate codes for that and see what OpenELEC responds to, but due to the parity bit issue with RC6 I'm kind of stuck using their built-in database (URC only replicates parity bits...

It's an advanced control system, meaning it could have any number of buttons. In fact it has many more MCE commands available, but IRW doesn't recognize them (I didn't want to go to the effort of trying to add completely unknown functions, but I had figured that if IRW gave them a name, then XBMC should know about them too - clearly not.) This way the control system can access specific functions - clean database, reboot vs suspend, go to specific screens - without having to go through tedious...

I have the Cubox-i4pro with OpenELEC (official) Version devel-20141007030503-r19340-g1be502f.
I also have a Speed mcr-1049 mce remote.

Okay, this forum is starting to tick me off. First it takes a long Quick Reply and vanishes it into the ether. Now, it claims I'm trying to "spam" the site and is sending an administrative note... which I managed to track down to me using coding brackets in my text, which I now had to switch to square brackets.

I don't necessarily want to call it [print]. I would be happy calling it [gobbledegook], but that doesn't work. I'm trying to add additional MCE commands from a remote control system so I can map them to...

Why do you want to call it print? It has to be mapped to an XBMC button label, see the howto I pointed to, under the heading Editing Lircmap.xml

So choose an XBMC button label that you aren't using already. There is another level of indirection in remote.xml

So, I have access to a few "extra" MCE functions that aren't mapped by default, and I was trying to get them to work for use with some custom functions. I'm not talking about mapping entirely new unknown commands, but ones that already seem to be known and mapped to KEY_ names, but just aren't used by default.

For example, the output from "irw" for one of these is:

d2 0 KEY_PRINT devinput

So, I then look into Lircmap.xml and see that "KEY_PRINT" is not mapped by default. I figure this should...

This is my remote.xml mod based on ideas from you

Mostly changes mce green button in live tv /pvr menus + info button on epg/channel osd
<- opens Timeline epg in live tv fullscreen
-> opens channel epg in live tv fullscreen

teletext button open subtitle addon instead of teletext
And Lircmap.xml wiith fix for guide button from home menu

I've been trying to troubleshoot an issue I've been having with a "new" computer I got and installed OpenELEC on. I have 4 computers with OpenELEC and only the new one is behaving this way. It seems to go into hibernation mode at some point and I can't wake it up. I thought it happened whenever I didn't touch it for a while, but the more I think about it and test it over time, I think it only happens when I leave it on pause. Basically when I come back my TV is black and the remote or keyboard...

I've also got the ultra usb receiver from and I got it to work with my Harmony remote.
Well, kind of got it to work, because mapping buttons and keys has some pitfalls....

Anyway, I'm getting a lot of "Device buffer overrun." in the dmesg when I use the IR remote.

There is a patch that was submitted to Ubuntu a few years ago that addresses this issue. More details here:

Also, when I kill lircd and do irw I can see all...

Dear Colleague
In accordance with numerous guides GPIO-LIRC
connected TSOP 31236 and received the necessary bunch with Remote Dune HD.
But I do not know the name of the remote (vid - pid) - maybe that's why not
command "irw" - although the team "mode2" & "irrecord lircd.conf -d
/ dev / lirc0 "and the function keys are written to the configuration file ......
Can be generous and will share their experiences in setting up LIRC
step by step?

Regards, Dmitry.
