After trying to get lirc to work for the last three weeks I seem to be sent in the same loop. I have looked at countless examples, read the docs... But none of that seems to work at all.

With the 2.6 kernels or 2.4.26 vanilla-sources with the new i2c I setup lirc and I do not get any entry in /dev/lirc for the device. If you create one using mknod /dev/lirc/0 c 61 0 and then try to connect using cat /dev/lirc/0 it says no such device. Maybe its putting it somewhere else in the /dev tree? In the log /var/log/messages it does say

Code:
Jun  7 11:01:13 jmd0 0.7.0pre4[10128]: lircd(hauppauge) ready


here is some relevent output from dmesg for the ivtv, lirc_dev and lirc_i2c modules (kernel 2.4.26 vanilla-sources with ivtv, i2c and lirc emerged with the ~x86 flag.)

Code:

Linux video capture interface: v1.00
i2c-core.o: i2c core module version 2.8.1 (20031005)
[saa7127.c: INFO]: SAA7127 video encoder driver loaded
ivtv: version 0.1.9 (release) loading
ivtv: SGarray_size = 420, DSGarray_size = 16
ivtv: Found an iTVC16 based chip
ivtv: Encoder revision: 0x02040011
ivtv: i2c client addr: 0x61 not found!
ivtv: i2c client addr: 0x61 not found!
ivtv: i2c client addr: 0x40 not found!
ivtv: Registered v4l2 device, minor 0
ivtv: Registered v4l2 device, minor 32
ivtv: Registered v4l2 device, minor 224
ivtv: Registered v4l2 device, minor 24
ivtv: loaded
lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, at major 61
bttv: driver version 0.7.108 loaded



If I use the vanilla-sources 2.4.26 with the builtin i2c support I get a /dev/lirc/0 but I can only connect to it once by cat /dev/lirc/0. irw and irxevent return / do nothing. The second call to cat /dev/lirc/0 returns nothing and calling irw a second time returns connection refused.

The system is a dual processor Athlon 2200 MP on a Tyan Thunder K7 mobo. SMP is activated in the kernel. I have a nVidia Geforce 2 mx 400 board with external breakout box and tuner with ir. At this moment the rivatv module is not loaded but the break out box is connected and has a ir reciever. It is a VisionTek XTASY Veverthing. The hauppage 250 PVR card is installed and working very well in mythtv.

Anyone get LIRC working with a hauppage PVR 250 and the grey remote?? What did you have to do?

I got it working with gentoo-dev-sources 2.6.5-r1 by following the MythTV guide here: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=152359&highlight=. However, I have not been able to get lirc working since... I can get ivtv working but not both at the same time.

Thanks, for the info. I started out with a 2.6 kernel and got ivtv working but could not get lirc so I went back to 2.4.26 to see if there was better support there. I did consult that guide (one you linked to) to setup mythTV under 2.4.26.

I'm trying the latest love-sources. lirc is compiled into that... Then hopefully ivtv will work!

Keep me posted on how it goes for you; we are pretty much stuck at the same point.

Last night I downloaded the 2.6.5 kernel from kernel.org compiled it and installed it. Then I applied the latest wolk patch from http://sourceforge.net/projects/wolk but this did not help. I had problems with the alsa driver and lirc still did not function correctly.

Well that's what I did to get it working:

1. Spend more than one hour reading and searching for a solution how to get my remote control working.
2. Did nothing except for: Pluggin it in and pressing a key :-)
