If you've got a "Dvico FusionHDTV DVB-T" , keep reading...please!
I've modified the dvico driver (see latest attached patch) to support both
dvico remote types, but I want to make sure I haven't broken the support for
the original remote in so doing. Specificially, I'm interested in knowing
if the original dvico remote generates 'event.hid' info with both 0x10046
AND 0x90001, or just with 0x10046 (the second option hopefully).
To test this, I need someone with the ORIGINAL (non-MCE) dvico remote to
help verify this by doing the following:
(it will require that your OS has all the usual development/compile stuff
1) Check out the current lirc CVS code:
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/lirc login
cvs -z8 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/lirc co lirc
2) apply the attached patch :
patch < ~/dvico_mce_hiddev.diff
3) build lirc in debug mode (no installation required, so it won't mess-up
your existing lirc install):
# when prompted:
# choose 1(driver configuration)->
# 8(USB devices)->
# DViCO USB Remote->OK->
# 3(Save config and run configure)-> OK
DO NOT 'make install' - it's NOT required!
4) test the newly compiled lircd with:
./daemons/lircd -n --device=/dev/hiddev0 (in one window)
irw (in another window)
# (or wherever your linux puts the usb device it assigned to it, maybe
# then press a few random remote buttons and make sure you get output in
both windows, ctrl-c to stop.
5) email me the output from both windows :-)
rm -rf ~/lirc
(and restart your normal lircd - however you normally do that)
Much Thanks in advance......!
