Hi there.

I'm building up an HTCP and have some trouble to get the remote control running. It's a iMON remote. The receiver is built-in in a Chieftech case.

Steps, I have done so far:
lsusb:
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 15c2:0036 SoundGraph Inc. LC16M VFD Display/IR Receiver


cat /proc/bus/input/devices:
I: Bus=0003 Vendor=15c2 Product=0036 Version=0002
N: Name="iMON Panel, Knob and Mouse(15c2:0036)"
P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.1-2/input1
S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb3/3-2/3-2:1.0/input/input3
U: Uniq=
H: Handlers=kbd mouse1 event3
B: PROP=0
B: EV=100007
B: KEY=10800320 200000200000000 30000 400110000 411000000801 e168000000000 10000002
B: REL=103

I: Bus=0003 Vendor=15c2 Product=0036 Version=0002
N: Name="iMON Remote (15c2:0036)"
P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.1-2/input0
S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb3/3-2/3-2:1.0/rc/rc0/input4
U: Uniq=
H: Handlers=kbd event4
B: PROP=0
B: EV=100013
B: KEY=1000000 0 0
B: MSC=10


la /dev/input/by-id/:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   9 26. Nov 14:10 usb-15c2_0036-event-if00 -> ../event4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   9 26. Nov 14:10 usb-15c2_0036-event-mouse -> ../event3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   9 26. Nov 14:10 usb-15c2_0036-mouse -> ../mouse1


Ok, the device exists. Now the configuration:
/etc/make.conf:
LIRC_DEVICES="devinput"

-> emerge lirc inputlirc

kernel-3.1.0:
Device Drivers  --->
 <*> Multimedia support  --->
  <*>   Remote Controller adapters  --->
   <M>   SoundGraph iMON Receiver and Display


lsmod:
Module                  Size  Used by
nvidia              12030466  40
imon                   17897  0


-> Now I copied the default config-file from lirc:
Code:
cp /usr/share/lirc/remotes/devinput/lircd.conf.devinput /etc/lirc/lircd.conf


inputlirc-Config:
/etc/conf.d/inputlircd:
INPUTLIRCD_OPTS="-g -m 0 -c -r250 /dev/input/by-id/usb-15c2_0036-*"


created the lirc-Symlink:
Code:
ln -s /dev/lircd /var/run/lirc/lircd


start inputlirc
Code:
/etc/init.d/inputlirc start
irw


And I don't get nothing. Not even one a little output.

Do I have a look into /var/log/messages, I see the following:
tail -f /var/log/messages:
...

If I press the wheel on the remote I can generate thousands of those lines. Means, the remote works. What did I forget to get that thing working?

Ok, I found the reason.

I compiled the whole IR stuff fix into the kernel. Only the iMON module I compiled as module to find out or play around with the available modules. For some strange reason I didn't get any signal. When I tried to built the whole stuff as modules, it worked.

-> working kernel config:
Code:

Device Drivers  --->
 <*> Multimedia support  --->
  <M>   Remote Controller adapters  --->
   <M>   SoundGraph iMON Receiver and Display


Maybe I'll check that anytime later, if it works when I compile everything fixed into the kernel and nothing as module.

/etc/conf.d/inputlircd:
INPUTLIRCD_OPTS="-g -m 0 -c -r250 /dev/input/by-id/usb-15c2_0036-*"


In almost every tutorial I found, these options were preferred. In my case the wheel on the remote which is responsible to simulate a cursor produced the lines in /var/log/messages. Of course it didn't work within any program. So I removed "-g -m 0" and got my direction key codes.
