opps! I thought I read some where that the best way to add a device was to modify an existing template; I must have miss read the post.
The Template I want to check in was created from scratch so don't worry about that. I need help with though, hopefully someone can help. I followed the instructions on this wiki page to the letter ( http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Control_a_TV_or_cable/satellite_box
). I can control the setup box using web admin or the orbiter if I select resend av codes but it's just not working on its own.
If I configured the setup box and set the pipes using the setup wizard, when I press the media button on the orbiter for this device (a setup box) the TV turns on but Lmce doesn't set the inputs or turn on the setup box. I can use some of the buttons, like channel up and down but not all. All buttons work if I press resend av code and do it manually.
If I use web admin, either the wizard or manually. When I press the more button on the orbiter so I can see the button for this device, the TV turns on, selects the wrong input, never turns on the setup box, and I can see 2 sometimes 3 different remotes cycling on the orbiter until it stops at the wrong remote. Again, using resend codes I can control the setup box flawlessly. Also, using webmin other media buttons disappear and stop working.
I don't understand what's happening. I've done countless reloads, quick and full regens, and reboots. It's definitely related to this device because if I delete it everything goes back to normal. I created a new device template and when I added that device the same thing happened. I randomly picked a dvd player from the list and as I can tell if I actually had it everything would be working. I must be doing something wrong when creating the template. Help!! :-(
