Users / USB-UIRT to Learn a new remote
« on: August 06, 2007, 07:08:53 pm »
So, I am trying to get my remote control to work. The remote does not have a module for LIRC, so I would like to know how to setup my USB-UIRT device and have it learn the keys I press on the remote.

Is there are easy tutorial somewhere on how to do this, seems all I find is how to setup USB-UIRT, but I cant get the remote to work.

Kinda Confused, any help would be greatly appricated.

My System runs Ubuntu 7.04

Users / Still a little confused about diff of Core and MDs

So I put my TV capture card in my Core? or MD? or both?
Do the IR devices to turn on my TV and Reciever connect to my MD? or Core? (This one seems simple but would like to make sure)
Does the MD need a HDD at all if its PXE booting?

So if I want to add new devices to my MD(such as Bluetooth), I plug it into the MD I want, but configure it on the Core? Cause the MD is Volitile, right?

In the case of IR devices, if I am suppose to have IR devices connected to the MD(See above question #2) do I need multiple IR Recievers for each entertaiment device. For example, say I have a TV, VCR, and a Reciever. Each can be controlled by their remotes, which work via IR, so I need 1 IR Reciever for each device? Cause isn't IR "line of site" comm.  Furthermore do the IR entertaiment devices (TV, VCR, Reciever) IR sensor need to be pointed directly at the IR device going to the MD?

I can understand that these questions are elemantrary, but its more of a reasurance than anything else.

Thank you a bunch for your replies.
