I bought a remote from maplin the other day and wasn't watching too closely. So I ended up with a maplin branded 'Vista MCE Remote' that is actually an Ortek VRC-1100 in drag.
Rather than return it, I thought I'd try to get the thing working with LMCE.
Following instructions found here --> http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW-TO:Configure_VRC-1100_remote_for_Ubuntu
I've got commands coming through in irw from the remote nicely, although the update was a little invasive (adding udev rules, installing inputlirc)
However, actually getting the wee beastie to control the orbiter on the core is another matter. I've tried various things, but nothing seems to have any particular effect, so I'm at a loss where to properly start..
Also, a 'USB Game Pad Remote' is being continually installed. and re-installed with a few minutes if I remove it, anything to do with this?
