Updated lircd.conf for lirc 0.8.5 with imon-pad

Post by SiliconFiend » Wed May 27, 2009 8:45 am

Well, the good news is that lirc 0.8.5 has incorporated the pad2keys patch so you no longer have to apply it separately. The bad news is that the button codes changed but the supplied lircd.conf.imon-pad was not updated accordingly. After a lot of pain, I managed to get a new, working version. I have submitted it to the lirc maintainers and also filed a Sourceforge bug/patch with it. For some reason the forum is not accepting any of the files I'm attempting to attach (complains about the extension; even .txt didn't work). Note that it is missing the Antec Fusion Wheel remote definition which was in the older file, so if you need that, you might have to re-add it. I ran out of time and patience to test re-adding it.

The other thing with 0.8.5 is that if you have the old style VFD (my usb id is 15c2:ffdc), you will need to add the kernel module option "options lirc_imon display_type=1" in /etc/modprobe.d/lirc (or wherever your distro puts it) and also comment out the pad2keys_active line if you had it in there.

Hopefully this will save some people the annoyance I've endured.

Hmm... I don't know. You might try different display_type numbers in the module parameters (modinfo lirc_imon will give you the values to try).

In the file /etc/modprobe.d/lirc you add the line

Code: Select all

options lirc_imon display_type=1
Sorry I don't know anything about nanosleep, but I seem to recall it was something that changed in the kernel a few versions back. Probably a Google search will help you convert a usleep call to nanosleep.

Aside from changing the display_type parameter, I really don't know what to tell you. Sorry.

Sorry, you're out of luck. I don't use VDR, and I use Gentoo, so I don't have a remote.conf. I could share my lircrc for MythTV and Xine, though.

You can grab it at http://www.migratingcoconuts.com/pub/patches/lircrc It's probably not perfect, but it works well for me.
