I've been following the instructions on this video to setup an IR remote in Openelec. I had it all working but then decided that the old Xbox remote I was using was a bit flaky, so I deleted the lircd.conf file and went to recreate another one using a universal remote. Using mode2 -d /dev/lirc0, I get plenty of 'pulse, space' responses from the remote, so the signals are being received OK. It's just when I go to create the config file using...
Just installed flirc and it runs fine, scrolling is smooth and so on. However I can't figure out how to shutdown Openelec with single keypress. I'm using Harmony One and "native" flirc profile with it. I´ve tried to edit keymaps, but no result, I just can't get OE to suspend with this thing. Help please!!!
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)
Does anyone have working DVBSky S960 on raspberry pi b+
On x86_64 whezzy work properly but on raspberry pi have a problem:
Linux OpenELEC 3.16.3 #1 PREEMPT Sat Oct 4 09:49:44 CEST 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux
OpenELEC (official) - Version: 4.2.1
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...
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...
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...
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...
