OK, this was a wholesale upgrade, including adding smp (a new Athlon
X2). Worked great at .19 a few weeks ago, then had some issues so I had
it shut down for a while. Fired it up and upgraded this weekend and
everything seems to be working except lirc. I don't think I changed
anything from what was working before, but there is no response to
remote commands. I'm using the Hauppage 350 ir connection, which has
generally always worked in the past. Upgrades all done using yum.
1. Physical connection. It's plugged into the Hauppage jack in the back.
2. Module is loaded.
3. /etc/lircd.conf and /home/myth/.mythtv/lircrc exist and remain
unchanged as near as i can tell. They still have the correct remote info
in them anyway.
4. lircd is running and /dev/lirc has the correct permissions.
5. dmesg shows the ivtv driver loaded, and shows the lirc module loaded.
No errors reported. Same in /var/log/messages.
6. irw starts and sits there like its supposed to, waiting for input.
The big changes here are myth .20, latest smp kernel for FC4, and ivtv
.7 (not sure what it was before, but it was much older). Is it not
lirc_i2c anymore? Is there something else I have to load? I've been over
to the ivtv site, but can't find anything specific. A quick search of
this forum isn't turning anything up that seems to relate to my
scenario. Any thoughts or helpful advice. I've fought with lirc before,
and always won. This time, I'm stumped. Thanks.
