Linux Infrared Remote Control
The key things to remember are:
- If you're using a PVR-350, at least, it won't work with stock Li Rc. You need 0.7.0 (as mentioned in Jarod's Guide)
- Set up
/etc/lircd.confto fit your remote.
- Use the
irwprogram to see whether Li Rc and your remote are working before going any further. It shows what events are generated by your remote. This is very helpful!
- Set up
~/.mythtv/lircrcwith the keys that are needed for MythTV and MPlayer
~/.lircrcfor Xine. I have the
~/.mythtv/lircrcbe a softlink to
~/.lircrc. See my lircrc for a MythTV + Xine lircrc suggestion using the Hauppauge Grey remote. (If you want to add yours too, maybe we should create a Li Rc/Li Rc Rc page for them all)

I use Knopp Myth and it worked out of the box for me with a Homebrew transmitter & receiver.
I use this /Sky Channel Changer Script with Sky in the UK - my sky box doesn't always change channels so it does it twice :) It also has 'locking' and works with the /Sky Dog Remover Script. I the ideas for this from a website somewhere.
/Li Rc26 is how I installed Lirc (well, the lirc_serial driver) under 2.6.4 and 2.6.6
