[Linux Station] - IR Remote (RM-IR002) Problem

Post by macvirii » Mon Mar 14, 2016 8:39 am

Good night to everyone, I`m having quite a difficult time trying to make my IR remote work with Linux Station - Ubuntu.
Tried LIRC, ir-keytable... but no dice, the fintek-cir is loaded but no command is received when on test mode.
Can anyone help?
Thanks

Sorry but until now didn't had the time to mess with the lxc, my solution was to get an remote and airmouse to control it, very satisfied with it for now.

Mine is TS-251. I'm using Linux-Station running Ubuntu 16.04.

I'm using logitech Harmony 600 programmed as QNAP media player remote. It works well in HybridDesk Station, but I couldn't get it work in LinuxStation.
ir-keytable command executed in LinuxStation (Ubuntu 16.04) returns this:

Found /sys/class/rc/rc0/ (/dev/input/event2) with:
Driver fintek-cir, table rc-rc6-mce
Supported protocols: lirc mce-kbd rc-6
Enabled protocols: lirc
Name: Fintek LPC SuperIO Consumer IR T
bus: 25, vendor/product: 1934:0010, version: 0x0007
Repeat delay = 500 ms, repeat period = 125 ms

So, I think the IR receiver is mapped in LinuxStation. However, I had no luck trying to get IR events using the same remote that works in HybridDesk.

I successfully managed to get my Harmony Elite to work with Linux Station (14.04) and program all remote's keys to do what I want, so it's possible !

Found /sys/class/rc/rc0/ (/dev/input/event3) with:
Driver ite-cir, table rc-rc6-mce
Supported protocols: NEC RC-5 RC-6 JVC SONY SANYO LIRC RC-5-SZ other
Enabled protocols: NEC
Name: ITE8708 CIR transceiver
bus: 25, vendor/product: 1283:0000, version: 0x0000
Repeat delay = 500 ms, repeat period = 125 ms

I choosed NEC protocol and used an unused remote to teach the Elite the IR codes.

I used "1.2 Alternative Installation method using InputLirc"

Note: I made it work with Kodi, this is the only thing I was interested.

can you share your ~/.kodi/userdata/Lircmap.xml ?

One thing I am noticing is that on Ubuntu 16, there are kernel headers missing for lirc:

Code: Select all

The following NEW packages will be installed:
  lirc

Philippe.


How does one change it in the LXC config file? Where is this file found? Thanks!

Update: Nevermind, found it -> $(getcfg ubuntu-hd install_path -f /etc/config/qpkg.conf)/lxc/ubuntu-hd (in my case)

I cannot get the remote working in Linux Station as well, and have tried both lirc, inputlirc, and ir-keytable -- same issue as previous user, kernel module/driver for remote is loaded (fintek-cir in my case) but just doesn't seem to be receiving any events from the remote. Works without issue in "standalone" Kodi / HD station, just not Linux Station.

Any help is appreciated!
