USB UIRT in 0810? [Solved]
« on: February 24, 2009, 05:41:37 pm »
Has anyone had luck getting the USB UIRT to work in 0810?

I added it manually, due to the fact that USB PNP is still having some issues in 0810.  However, when I create a template for a new AV device and set 'Controlled by' to IR, when I try to add a code and select the 'learn code' radio box in the web admin, it automatically sets it back to 'enter code.'

My guess this is due to problems with the USBUIRT interface.  I'm not entirely certain I have the port set correctly.  The drop-down box for the port lists the two system serial ports, the virtual serial port mapped for the GC100, and a PCI address.  I selected the PCI address, thinking it's the only remaining one (I believe it was new after pluggin in the USB UIRT).  But I may be wrong about that.

Any advice would be definitely appreciated.

Thanks,
-Pete

You must be really tired after putting in all that hard work. 

Oh and just FYI, underscores aren't allowed in domain names, but I can understand that they decided to make an exception just this once for a genius like you.  :P

I know this is a moot point since krys is on it ;), but for future information, it turned out that the USB_UIRT_038 executable wasn't being started from a router reload.  Starting it from the command line got the USB UIRT functioning.  As for capturing the codes, there were a few more steps involved that weren't exactly clear to me for doing so.  I haven't found clear wiki information on learning codes, so I'll add in the steps that TSCHAK guided me through.

PeteK,

try executing Start_LocalDevices.sh in /usr/pluto/bin

That's what I do after a restart

This sound great, exactly the issue I am having. Where did you post the solution that you found for the learning and USBUIRT not functioning issues? Is the "Start_LocalDevices.sh in /usr/pluto/bin" your solution?

Thanks in advance

this is an old issue, and this fix is no longer needed.
