# model no. of remote control: Hauppauge A415-HPG
# devices being controlled by this remote: PVR-350
#

begin remote

  name  Hauppauge_350


If you run irw check to see if your A415-HPG Remote reports as Hauppauge_350, that looks like the current name for the remote.

I also need to pm you about your kernel upgrade and the hvr-1600s.  Once I get my alpha2 setup stable I'm going to install on my main automation server with my hvr-1600s.

hi,
I have followed the link  "http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/LIRC_on_Ubuntu_Edgy_Eft"
a. Setup build environment (Install latest drivers lirc-0.8.5) - done

b. Compile driver module -
    it shows HVR-1300 and Hauppauge TV card options(i have tested both)

c. Testing LIRC $ dmesg |tail
shows fine:
   - [   21.789438] lirc_i2c: chip 0x10020 found @ 0x71 (Hauppauge PVR150)
  -  [   21.789455] lirc_dev: lirc_register_plugin: sample_rate: 10

but not showing like
" ivtv0: i2c attach to card #0 ok [client=Hauppauge IR (PVR150), addr=71]"


 dcerouter_113317:~# dmesg | grep lirc
[   21.654157] lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, major 61
[   21.789438] lirc_i2c: chip 0x10020 found @ 0x71 (Hauppauge PVR150)
[   21.789455] lirc_dev: lirc_register_plugin: sample_rate: 10
dcerouter_113317:~# dmesg | grep Hauppauge
[   18.909962] cx18-0: Autodetected Hauppauge card
[   19.161885] tveeprom 0-0050: Hauppauge model 74041, rev C6B2, serial# 5321284
[   19.161899] cx18-0: Autodetected Hauppauge HVR-1600
[   19.412705] cx18-0: Initialized card: Hauppauge HVR-1600
[   21.789438] lirc_i2c: chip 0x10020 found @ 0x71 (Hauppauge PVR150)


d.  mode2 -d /dev/lirc0 
Note: used mode2 -d /dev/lirc/0 and and push a few buttons on the remote.  The remote is responding well. I can see code:<hex values>.
[As per "http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/LIRC"  look the Warning: When.. the /dev/lirc device node will disappear again..But the device node will not be visible as /dev/lirc, but might be located in a different location like e.g. /dev/lirc/0 ..]


e. ps ax |grep lirc
 4081 ?        S<     0:00 [lirc_dev]
 32489 pts/26   S+     0:00 grep lirc

Not running default the following processes and after manually running mannually processed you can see:
 ps ax |grep lirc
 1490 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/sbin/lircd --device=/dev/lirc/0
 1541 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/sbin/lircmd
 4081 ?        S<     0:00 [lirc_dev]



f.  sudo /etc/init.d/lirc start
  lirc not exist and /etc/init.d/lircd exist.
   - $which lirc   : retuns blank
   - $which lircd  : returns      > /usr/local/sbin/lircd
   - I have created a file /etc/init.d/lirc
     #! /bin/sh
#
# This is an init script for Debian Sid
# Copy it to /etc/init.d/lirc and type
# > update-rc.d lirc defaults 20
#


test -f /usr/local/sbin/lircd || exit 0

case "$1" in
  start)
    # in case your lirc dev points are not created automatically, the next
    # line will create them.
    test -c /dev/lirc || (mkdir -p -- . /dev && /bin/mknod /dev/lirc c 61 0)
    echo -n "Starting lirc daemon: lircd"
    start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec /usr/local/sbin/lircd -- --device=/dev/lirc
    echo "."
    ;;
  stop)
    echo -n "Stopping lirc daemon: lircd"
    start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --exec /usr/local/sbin/lircd
    echo "."
    ;;
  reload|force-reload)
    start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --signal 1 --exec /usr/local/sbin/lircd
    ;;
  restart)
    echo -n "Stopping lirc daemon: lircd"
    start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --exec /usr/local/sbin/lircd
    sleep 1
    echo -n "Starting lirc daemon: lircd"
    start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec /usr/local/sbin/lircd -- --device=/dev/lirc
    echo "."
    ;;
  *)
    echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/lircd {start|stop|reload|restart|force-reload}"
    exit 1

1.  Ref of c: ivtv client is  not attached to /dev/lirc/0 device, how to resolve this.

2. Ref of d: /dev/lirc/0 where should i point device permanently instaed of /dev/lirc0.

3. Ref of e: how and where should i add to load permanently /usr/sbin/lircd and /usr/sbin/lircmd process? I stuck here.  If I go and check on linuxmce screen for the remotes, AVWizard remote not detected.

Thanks

*hmm*

I wanna bitch slap all of you.

Seriously.

You all are making this _WAY TOO HARD_

Get a USB UIRT, and _BE DONE WITH IT_. Use _THAT_ to control your remote, and control your A/V devices.

As for the HVR-1600, it will not be supported correctly until a proper device template is done. Use the PVR-150/250/500/USB2 and HDHomeRun templates as a guide to do this, along with their appropriate setup scripts. STOP DUCT TAPING THINGS AND DO IT RIGHT SO EVERYONE ELSE CAN BENEFIT FROM PLUG AND PLAY EXPERIENCE!
