VDR + remote
« on: July 20, 2008, 03:56:52 pm »
Hi,
When I use my remote with LMCE, everything seems to work ok apart from VDR. Only the menu button appears to function. I know this has been an on going problem, but will it be fixed for future releases? Is there a way I can configure it work using VDR config tools rather than LMCE?
Thanks,
Mark

I use my remote with VDR without any problems. I just customize a bit /etc/vdr/remote.conf. Only color buttons cause some problems. But they can be remap in the remote.conf.

Yes these IR remote button mapping issues will be fixed in an update.

All the best

Hi,
Is there any documentation on configuring the remote.conf file in LMCE? I have pasted the file below, can anybody explain it to me please? Do I just need to change the KBD settings with the codes recorded in the USB UIRT log file?
Thanks,
Mark

If you'd like to configure remote control you should modify the first part of the remote.conf started from LIRC. The first column contains VDR commands and the second one - commands from lircd.conf. You should match there LMCE commands and actual IR codes sent from your remote. Here is the page about remote.conf definition - http://www.vdr-wiki.de/wiki/index.php/Remote.conf, but it's on German :)
