I've got this great LinuxMCE software and no way to control it. Could someone please help me put the steering wheel back on my Ferrari?
I've been in the initial stages of installing LMCE for about 3 months now. In Jan I installed from the most recent snapshot and my GYR3101 was completely plug/play. For the last 3 months my main effort has been to try to get my #&*$~! serial card and Insteon modem working. In the process I've busted the system in many creative ways. I usually reload LMCE with the latest snapshot. A few weeks ago I noticed that my remote no longer works. Now I finally sorted out my serial card, but can't figure out how to get the remote back.
What has changed in the last 3 months that the GYR3101 is no longer plug/play?
Maybe it is the snapshot I'm using and I should revert to an earlier one?
Maybe the snapshot makes no difference and the problem is caused by a file that downloads during installation?
This thread is wandering back and forth between older and newer Gyration remotes and I'm getting a bit confused. I figured I'd give it a try and follow the directions in the following link (even though it says GYR4101):http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Gyration_GYR4101US
Is this patch also supposed to work for the GYR3101? Didn't work for me. Esev's post says "The music remote isn't supported in older kernels". I don't think this patch has anything to do with my problem because my kernel version has not changed from the time my remote worked in Jan to now, nor do I have a music remote.
I've reinstalled LMCE several times, I've deleted and re-installed the remote using the admin site. I've tried to re-installed using Sarah (it detects and appears to plug/play but then does not work. I'm running out of ideas.
