Pinnacle PCTV Remote Kit for Windows Media Center


- 2.0 USB infrared receiver/blaster
- one the back of the black remote it says RC6 

MCE_Remote the black on the the far right "1069/335(UK/AU)"


Mythbuntu 9.04 fix

this remote didn't work for me right out of the box with Mythbuntu 9.04 x64 I had setup lirc to use mceusb2 ( Windows Media Center Remotes new version Phillips ) in the Mythbuntu Control Centre

here is what I did do get it working.

lsusb | grep Pinnacle Bus 002 Device 002: ID 2304:0225 Pinnacle Systems, Inc. [hex]

ls | grep lirc lircd ( if you only see this do the following )

sudo -i ( to become root ) apt-get install lirc-modules-source dkms remove -m lirc -v 0.8.4a -all dkms remove -m lirc -v 0.8.4a --all

dkms add -m lirc -v 0.8.4a dkms -m lirc -v 0.8.4a build dkms -m lirc -v 0.8.4a install rmmod lirc_mceusb2 modprobe lirc_mceusb2 /etc/init.d/lirc restart

irw /dev/lirc0 connect: Connection refused
