OK. I ran into the device creation problem as well, with 7.10 beta2. I posted the issue in Mantis, and got a response/fix, and file the very next morning. (Big props to those guys)
The issue number is: 003786
The link to the fix, and the file, as to where to place it is:
This resolved the issue instantly, however it never hurts to logout of the admin, do a "Quick Reload" of the router, and then log back into web admin
I hope this helps.
Well I applied the fix.. still no go... from the Device Templates screen, I added a manufacturer (Streamzap) then chose device category (Lirc Remote Controls < Remote Controls < Peripherals).. then went down to Device Template and Add Device Template... when I click on it, nothing happens.... so I'm stuck again..
Also, The Streamzap PC remote comes with a USB receiver... won't I have to add the receiver AND the remote as separate devices?? Of course, so far I can't add anything...
Can someone out there who has actually added a new remote and receiver that isn't supported help me? I'm getting frustrated and to the point of just buying a plug and play remote... I just hate to waste 2 perfectly good remotes that work with other linux applications... and of course it's getting old jumping up and running to the keyboard when I have to do something..
I've even made this remote work with linux apps that don't have lirc support so I know this is doable... the remote works perfectly with myth, xine, geexbox, elisa.. and I made it work with the XBMC linux port... I would even pay someone to help, but it would probably be cheaper to buy new remotes...
