Hello all, I upgraded my WDTV Live to a Haswell NUC and I wanted to get the WDTV IR Remote working in XBMC because I am only using my NUC for simple media playing. It took a couple hours (I'm a complete XBMC newb), but I got it working and I thought I would share because you guys on the forum here were very helpful.

I did not get it to turn on the NUC from a cold state (damn Intel bios..), and I didn't want to try the "install windows then install IR driver", but it works perfectly in XBMC and...

Just upgraded to 3.95.6 (generic x64) and the irsend doesnt seem to work :(

the command :

irsend -d /var/run/lirc/lircd-lirc0 SEND_ONCE receiver poweroff
returns :
irsend: could not connect to socket
irsend: No such file or directory

works perfectly on openelec 3.2.4

Hi guys,

I lookes in a few Threads of openelec forum and xmbc forum.
The problem should be known and I think easy for you, but I have big trouble in head at the moment ;)

I want to configure the right mouse button of Hama MCE Remote, because it put the function of ContextMenu and not the BTN_Right.

Could you g'me some instructions how I can get the right mouse function on the button of remote.

I saw same HowTos with lircmap.xml and remote.xml, but I didn't find the settings which I have to...

I've tried it in every USB port (4 x USB2 and 4 x USB3) and did the lsusb command each time. It's listed every time but never works.
I haven't tried unplugging / plugging while in OpenELEC though. I'll check that and your Ebay references tomorrow night, or tonight I should say, it's 12.45am here.

I read a bit on the flirc forums and yes, there seems to be mixed results, so I'll look at any alternative options you come up with. This setup is useless without a remote.

Thanks again.

Just checking... have you plugged it into a non-USB 3.0 port? I'm reading some reports about this receiver not working on USB 3.0 ports.
Also, does anything happen if you plug it out and back in again when OpenELEC is running?

I've read mixed opinions about Flirc (mainly slow repeat rates), it might be a better idea to gamble on another RC6 receiver. If you don't mind shopping in China, check Ebay for "OVU430006" or "SMK IR", I've had success with both of those. I can check my devices and their...

I've already got the usb options in the bios set to legacy otherwise it won't pick up my usb keyboard either. Pretty sure fast boot is already disabled but I'll double check. I haven't seen any way to disable uefi boot though.

On another note, I'm also playing with the lsusb command, after some advice on the xbmc forums. For the new PC it produces this output...

Thanks for the reply. :cheer:

I'll try to dig up some info on the lirc tools and give it a go.

I should add that the same remote works on the Revo as well.

I have both the remote that came with the HP Receiver and a Harmony 525. They all work on the Revo.

I'm using OpenElec 3.2.4 on a RPI connected in HDMI to a Pioneer amplifier which is connected to a Panasonic TV (TX-P42V20e). Everything is working great, HD movies are played smoothly. My plan is to not switch off my RPI. I did not modify anything (yet?) the config.txt file.

My only issue is the TV remote control :
- If I boot up the RPI, the TV remote control is recognized as a CEC adapter and I can navigate in OpenElec using my TV remote control. But, let say after 1-2 days, if I...

It seems to be picked up fine during the boot process.
One experience I had: I ordered a HP remote from a nice man in China. It arrived in perfect condition, I pressed buttons, but it never worked. Turned out the battery was empty -- it had just enough power to make the receiver blink, but it sent out garbage, apparently. Replaced the battery and it worked fine. Perhaps this is the case with your remote as well?

If that's not it, you can try playing with the raw lirc tools a bit... irw and...

MY X10 Mediom remote works fine - out of the box without any extra config files , lirc etc...
i'm using only with delay and period
The remote works fine with OpenElec 3.2 for many month.
Now - with openelec 4 beta 5 something going wrong .
Maybe openelec change type of recognized remote or change type of used driver , maybe something else.
I don't know.
Please excuse my bad english too :)

Thank you for the reply.
I think I will go for an MCE remote instead of my old one. I'll try the new xbox remote. Seems quite nice.
Thanks again !

I've got a simple learning remote (Sony RM-VLZ620). I've teached the power button from a HP MCE remote to this remote as this indeed seems to be the only way to wake up the NUC. I don't think any setting on the Linux can do the trick as no software is running when the device is powered off. Maybe there could be some way to reprogram the IR receiver on the NUC in order to configure the wake up code, but I'm not aware of that.

The scan code for MCE power button is 0x800ff40c .

Not likely, get a Logitech Harmony instead.

AFAIK only the power button of the MCE remote can wake the NUC. All the configuration for lirc does not help you here, because lirc is not running in this moment.
