Need help with Toshiba mce remote
« on: July 30, 2011, 10:48:19 pm »
I have bought a MCE remote.
I will post all knowledge of this device here and how far i have come.

I ask for help it getting this device working. and putting this information to the DCE databas and on the Wiki page.

Receiver information:
Interface: USB
Name: RF MCE Remote Control Receiver
Model: CM23E
Serial Number: 10B06
Additional information: Made by X10 in China

Remote Control information:
Name: RF MCE Remote Control
Model: OR22V
Additional information: Made by X10 in China


Now to the progress.
I have with help from TSCHAKeee via the irc channel added the Receiver to the DCE to auto initialize when plugged in.
This i have accomplished by adding a Device Template about the Device ad a Remote Receiver.

I don't know if it works properly, sense i cant get the remote control to respond. Lets assume it works for now

Any idea how get the remote control working so i can start fail search?

Kind Regards Exebat

pull up a terminal and type 'xev' a little box should appear and in the terminal window you should see events happening when you press the buttons on the Remote.

take a look at this wiki page: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Creating_a_Device_Template_for_a_Remote_that_uses_the_kernel_input_subsystem

Techstyle, xev only works with remotes that work like keyboards.

exebat, you will need to look at the log for your  LIRC_DCE device, to see if anything gets emitted when you press keys. Using the follow log feature in advanced > configuration > devices can help with this, after you've selected the LIRC_DCE device nearest your media director.
