I've just installed mythtv for the first time, for which I bought a
cheap TwinHan DVB-T card.
I have live tv working, no EPG yet but that's another problem.
My first problem is that an IR remote and receiver came with my card and
it's a HID keyboard device.
It connects up fine; I can enter chars with in on the terminal. I'm now
trying to get it to work with mythtv.
Most of what I did afterward was guess work based on documentation.
I downloaded lirc 0.8.0 and configured it up for /dev/input.
Then I compiled and installed it.
At this point I had no /dev/lirc or lirc0
I scrounged an init.d script for Debian/Ubuntu and eventually figured
out that I needed to reconfigure it to point at /dev/input/event1
Then I used irremote to create a lircd.conf file for it and irw is now
reporting my remote presses correctly.
It's still sending keys to the buffer though, is that going to
ultimately conflict with lirc?
I put the mythtv lircrc.example file into my home folder as .lircrc and
But nothing happens in mythfrontend and I've run out of docs to stare
at, apart from the fact I appear to be missing irxevent?
Do I need that?
Any help would be gratefully received :)
