So I've had Lirc working in all previous mythtv setups, but this move to
the kernel is really throwing me.
I had it working with FC14 until the latest kernel update. But I did it
by leaving out the lirc rpm and building my own 0.8.7, as I've done with
previous installs. I had a bit of a stumble there until I had set the
lirc device to be /var/run/lirc/lircd too. That was with kernel
188.8.131.52-64.fc14.x86_64. Then I updated to 184.108.40.206-74.fc14.x86_64,
rebuilt lirc as I did before, but now it doesn't work.
So I decided it's time to punt on the custom build and finally figure
out how to use the lirc build that comes via rpm. First, some info on
Fedora 14 64bit
Hauppauge 1250 ATSC tuner
Philips (or NXP) eHome Infrared Receiver (mceusb)
Hauppauge remote control codes
Before punting on my custom build, I actually did have it working to the
point where irw showed button presses on the remote. Myth was
configured with the proper socket device, as it had been working before.
I can't get the rpm installed lirc to show any keypresses at all w/
irw. I see that the kernel comes w/ an mceusb kernel module, which I
load. The lirc driver list does not include mceusb for some reason
though. So I'm probably failing right off the bat by not having a
I have not been able to find a good step by step tutorial yet on how to
get the mce receiver working w/ the new lirc kernel integration. Can
anyone show me or direct me to a guide that would be good from the
context of using the old lirc to the new model? I can't figure any of
