Antec Fusion/Everything Working

Info

This page contains all of the files and information I needed to get my Antec Fusion Case (Silver finish, uses the newer iMon LCD 0038) and it's included Veris RM200 remote working. Note that I used Mythbuntu 9.10.

For Mythbuntu 10.10, there are some big differences from previous versions that need to be setup. This is due to the imon IR driver residing in the kernel now. We now utilize the Linux Dev Input (/dev/input/eventX). For information on how to setup a Soundgraph iMON Antec Veris controller for Mythbuntu 10.10, please go here: Soundgraph_iMON_Antec_Veris_Mythbuntu_10.10

LIRC

When installing Mythbuntu, or, later, through the Mythbuntu control center, enable the Soundgraph iMon Antec Veris IR Remote. This will handle most of the nasty stuff for us.

The Knob

To get the giant knob on the front of the case working, create the following file:

Script.png /usr/share/lirc/remotes/imon/lircd.conf.imon-antec-knob

#
# this config file was automatically generated
# using lirc-0.8.0(imon_pad) on Sun Apr  2 20:21:17 2006

# devices being controlled by this remote: iMON Knob

begin remote
  name		Antec_Fusion_Knob
  bits		24
  eps		30
  aeps		100

  one		0	0
  zero		0	0
  post_data_bits	8
  post_data	0xFF
  gap		131993
  toggle_bit	0


    begin codes
      WheelCC		0x010000
      WheelCW		0x000100
      WheelClick	0x000008
    end codes
end remote

Then edit /etc/lirc/lircd.conf and add an include line to that file, under the one that is already there.

Button Configuration

Overwrite the existing ~/.lirc/mythtv with this one:

And make a new file ~/.lirc/irexec with the following contents. Make sure to replace 'user' with your username (not mythtv).

Script.png ~/.lirc/irexec

begin
    remote = Antec_Veris_RM200
    prog = irexec
    button = KEY_POWER
    config = /home/user/Scripts/runmyth.sh &
    repeat = 0
    delay = 0
end

begin
    remote = Antec_Veris_RM200
    prog = irexec
    button = KEY_OPEN
    config = /home/user/Scripts/eject.sh &
    repeat = 0
    delay = 0
end

begin
    remote = Antec_Veris_RM200
    prog = irexec
    button = KEY_EJECTCD
    config = /home/user/Scripts/eject.sh &
    repeat = 0
    delay = 0
end

irexec

We need to setup two irexec scripts. These need to go in ~/Scripts and you need to chmod +x them. Note that if you have a strange setup and your main DVD drive is not /dev/scd0, you will need to change this accordingly.

Script.png ~/Scripts/eject.sh

#!/bin/bash
eject -T /dev/scd0

Script.png ~/Scripts/runmyth.sh

#!/bin/bash
if [ -z `ps -e -o pid,command | grep mythfrontend | grep -v grep` ]
then
    mythfrontend &
    (for i in $( seq 1 100 )
    do
        echo $i;
        sleep 0.1;
    done) | zenity --auto-close --progress --text="Starting MythTV. This may take longer than this dialog shows." --title="Starting MythTV"
else
    zenity --question --text="Are you sure you wish to exit MythTV?" --title="Exit MythTV?"
    if [ $? == 0 ]
    then
        for x in $( ps -e -o pid,command | grep mythfrontend | grep -v grep );
        do
            if [ `expr index "$x" "/"` == 1 ]
            then
                continue;
            else
                kill $x;
            fi
        done
    fi
fi

MythTV Keys

The last step is to make sure the coloured buttons on the remote work. To do this, go to Utilities/Setup -> Edit Keys and find the following keys under JumpPoints and set a new binding by pressing the corresponding button on the remote. Note that you may have to reboot to get the remote working right if you just edited the lirc files.

Live TV -> TV (Yellow)
MythGallery -> Pictures (Blue)
MythVideo -> Videos (Red)
Play DVD -> DVD (Purple)
Play music -> Music (Green)
