I'm still stumped with this one. I really cannot get my Hauppage remote
to work in Mythtv
Myth's log gives me the following:
mythtv: could not connect to socket
mythtv: No such file or directory
lirc_init failed for mythtv, see preceding messages
If I do a ls -l /dev/lirc* I get
crwxrwxrwx 1 root root 61, 0 Apr 19 10:32 /dev/lirc
srwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Apr 20 14:35 /dev/lircd=
If I run lircd I get
lircd 0.7.0pre2: there seems to already be a lircd process with pid 2683
lircd 0.7.0pre2: otherwise delete stale lockfile /var/run/lircd.pid
this tells me that lirc is definitely running.
An strace on mythfrontend shows me that the file it **might** be trying
to access is: /var/run/.nscd_socket ??
**irw shows me my key presses in the terminal. I have also made sure
that the lircrc file has been copied over to ~/.mythtv/lircrc .
Any ideas anyone ?
