* Raspberry Pi 2

HX1838 GPIO Setup:

GND to Pi's GND

I moved house and since plugging in my Rpi2 setup again, it will no longer detect my tuner. I know the device is functioning as Windows detects it and Openelec detects it, but TVHeadend doesn't anymore. I've tried disconnecting it then plugging it back in as other posts have mentioned that has helped, but it doesn't for me.

I did a dmseg dump (below) and can see that OPenelec is detecting the unit but it is now failing to complete the driver install(??) (line 7.234841] usb 1-

I have a weird situation that is popping up in the current version of OE (6.0.3) but was also present in version 5.x before.

I have a HTPC with an FLIRC usb IR receiver. I have it configured to do a sleep when I press the power button on my remote (and wake-up again as well).
That works just fine... but only once - after a cold (re)boot is it working fine. Afterwards it simply blanks the screen for a split second and returns to normal mode. If I want it to go into sleep mode again I need to...

Ok, I found out some old thread and this fixes it:
ln -s /dev/null /storage/.config/system.d/eventlircd.service

No idea what it does, but now the enter (ok) button works.

Now that I'm back at home I've checked and both Lircmap.xml and remote.xml are untouched by the upgrade, files have the same checksum as my backup and they're dated Dec 2012.

I really have no idea why it suddenly stopped working but it's pretty bad. Does OE6 no longer use these files?

I have added IR Blasting functionality to OpenELEC 3.0. I have created this thread to collect testing data for it.
If you know how IR Blasting works please test my builds and provide feedback in this thread

it is tested with a MCE Transceiver and that works good.

I would also like others that don't have MCE Transceiver equipments to test if there remotes still works with my changes.

Mode2 sees all the keypresses of my remote, but lirc only accepts 1 button press then will not respond to the remote again until it has received no input from the remote for 5 seconds, which is very annoying. Anyone seen this behavior before or have any idea what could be going on?

Yes, it is possible. Just map Power Off button with Keymap Editior addon (Global - System - Shutdown). This will shutdown Kodi instead showing power menu.

You use Logitech Harmony to control Kodi with built in IR (Wetek Core)? I am trying to do this but with no result.

Thanks for your help, will test this solution this evening :)
I don't use the internal IR: Lirc USB will do this job ;)
It's a fantastic little piece of hardware !!!!

Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you. Lemonlime
I have absolutely no idea what these commands do but with these my remote is working like charm.

I am using the $5 remote from China (Aliexpress) with Toshiba logo. picture attached.
just copied lircd.conf to configfiles folder. I did not even create the xml file for translation.

Thanks again lemonlime.

New to using the generic build of Openelec after being impressed with it running on Raspberry Pi 3. I brought a NUC6i5SYH Skylake board and have installed Openelec 6.95.1 after running into "GPU not supported issues" using the stable 6.0.3 release.

I've updated the NUC to the latest firmware release 0039 that was released on 16/3/2016.

I've configured the BIOS to enable CIR and selected "XBOX ONE" rather than "GENERIC REMOTE CONTROL"

I've configured my Logitech Harmony One remote as a "Xbox...

I always used these settings without problems even with Openelec 6.0.3. I'm using OE on a RPi model B with the XboxDVDDongle and a All-In-One Zapper (URC 11-6230) remote that I configured up when I had the Xbox Classic. It always worked fine.

Today I updated to OE 7 (beta) and I noticed that the KEY_MENU only opens the lefthand sidebar menu and it used to be the return key (the key to access the left side menu was KEY_LEFT). This renders my remote unusable since I cannot "go back".

Maybe it's...

Just responding. Here is mine with a TSOP4838. Most stable Rpi builds work with this. If it's not responding try this.

Solution: ssh to your pi as root
run this:

mount -o remount,rw /flash
echo dtoverlay=lirc-rpi >> /flash/config.txt

and restart
