I have a new remote that should be arriving today -
One for All 10820
Currently using a Rosewill remote with usb stick receiver
Works pretty good but doesn't control the other devices I want so I
purchased the One for all remote.
I'm hoping the new remote puts out a stronger signal then the
Rosewill. Sometimes it's difficult to get a response.
I also have another receiver that came with a Dvico FusionHDTV. It's
a stereo jack type connection that fits into the Dvico PCI card.
I'm wondering if I still have reception problem, if I can use this
receiver with the new remote?
I'm running Mythbuntu .22
When I run the lirc configure command `sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc`
there is an option for -
IR receiver IC connected to audio input (EXPERIMENTAL)
IR receiver IC connected to audio input using ALSA (EXPERIMENTAL)
Has anybody tried this type of connection?
Or is there some type of usb/stereo jack converter?
When this connection was previsously configured on my back end it was
seen as a usb device -
Jan 5 20:46:50 myth kernel: [139556.084196] input: i2c IR
(FusionHDTV) as /devices/virtual/input/input11
Jan 5 20:46:50 myth kernel: [139556.084282] ir-kbd-i2c: i2c IR
(FusionHDTV) detected at i2c-1/1-006b/ir0 [cx23885]
Currrently using SPDIF coax on this Zotac front end
Any body have any input on this?
