October 3, 2012 at 13:41 #4749 tomlohaveKeymaster how did you connect your homemade remote ? October 4, 2012 at 00:54 #4763 cola03Participant connect to COM. October 4, 2012 at 02:27 #4767 cola03Participant 1. don’t know how to load lirc_dev.so automatically (I can load lirc_dev by modprobe) 2. don’t know how to start lircd when system booted (I remember in old version can start it in init.d, but now I can’t find init.d) 3.when lirc received signle, how to transfer to xbmc? 4. does the eventlircd support serial remote controller? October 4, 2012 at 03:11 #4773 tomlohaveKeymaster see this changeset : http://hg.openbricks.org/geexbox/rev/19d3ffb6c3a1 you can create your own confing in /etc/lirc/mycustom.conf in /etc/lirc/hardware.conf, modify it to use your com port then reboot lircd should start and xbmc use it October 4, 2012 at 08:55 #4783 cola03Participant Hi,tomlohave, thanks for your answer. but still got problem. because your suggest is the changeset, so according to it, I do: 1.modify hardware.conf, it look like DRIVER=”mplay” DEVICE=”/dev/lirc” 2.add /etc/lirc/mycustom.conf, so it will prevent eventlircd to start at boot time 3.systemctl enable lircd, it make lircd start at boot time. 4.add code to Lircmap.xml but still can’t work normally, so have 2 questions 1. does it need lirc_serial.ko module? if didn’t load it , no /dev/lirc/ device, if need, how to add it when boot? 2.the remote controller can be use in geexbox 1.x with lirc. how to know the lirc already transfer the code to xbmc(how to debug it)? October 4, 2012 at 10:05 #4784 tomlohaveKeymaster 1) you can add a file in /usr/lib/module-load.d called lirc.conf containing : lirc_serial 2) xbmx listen on /var/run/lirc/lircd (see the command line for xbmc and lircd) you can test with irw October 4, 2012 at 19:54 #4798 cola03Participant bingo. because in the default /etc/lirc/hardware.conf, the driver use mplay. but here should use default, then the xbmc can receive the remote button.
