Talk:ATI Remote Wonder
A good article. I followed it through and got my ATI Remote Wonder to work with MythTV on a OpenSuse 10.2 system. However the problem arose on rebooting. My machine took much longer to reboot and the remote no longer worked. After much trial and error, I tracked this down to the lines the article suggested that should be inserted in the /etc/modprobe.conf file
alias char-major-61 lirc_atiusb
alias lirc_dev lirc_atiusb
After removing these lines the remote worked OK.
Also if I enabled lirc in Yast, again the remote did not work for some reason. I disabled lirc in Yast and started it from the command line.
There are two nearly duplicate lircrc config files, and other information that should be consolidated.
I reordered the headings to better reflect the content.Lauret 14:09, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
Ubuntu 12.04 without lirc but with mouse support and correct evdev instructions
I have posted some partial updated instructions for ATI remote wonder without lirc. Also includes configuring the Mouse part of the Remote Wonder too, and matching any event* dev as they seem to change regularly on reboot. http://adamfowleruk.wordpress.com/2012/06/20/myth-tv-remote-control-working/
The evdev isntructions also fail. I've contacted the original author of the evdev altered driver and he recommended changing the following line: git pull git://www.thenautilus.net/xf86-input-evdev code-remap-2.6.0 to: git checkout -b code-remap-2.6.0 origin/code-remap-2.6.0
He also mentioned you'll likely need 2.7.0 instead of 2.6.0.
I'm happy to get the evdev modified driver working and add a Ubuntu 12.04 section. Wanted to post this here in the meantime.
