Short update on the missing scancodes. The joystick on the remote
reacts to key pressure. If I press "Joystick Up" softly, it generates
one code. If I press it harder - there is another code and so on.
Softer pressures doesn't seem to be recognized, while the hardest
pressure actually gets recognized by existing driver.
My friend says it's ok if softer pressure won't work at all - as even
an accidental touch resulted in some undesirable actions when he was
using this iMON in Windows.
All other buttons on the remote seem to be recognized.
BUT: I still can't get the remote to work as I expect it.
Mplayer, for example, doesn't react on Play / Pause / FF, etc.
buttons. It may be that lircrc isn't mapping these buttons properly,
although I use the one from your site and key namings do match.
Is there any utility that shows what button is being received and
processed by lirc? 'irw' would be perfect, but it doesn't show
anything for me on this system - it's either a symptom, or a 'feature'
when using lirc in devinput mode...
