I finally got irw working with my box.  I installed lirc-0.8.4a using this tutorial:  newbielink:http://brakemeier.de/electronics/vdr/lirc-imon.html [nonactive]

Now I need to figure out how to get LIRC working with linuxmce.

Anyone have a good tutorial on how to do this?

my htpc is connected to my TV so a cannot work on the console there because i can't read it. I have to do such things with putty from my PC, does this make a difference?

do i have to start KDE Desktop to install LIRC and get it to work or can i do this just after LinuxMCE has started?

this cannot be that difficult..... please help

Just follow by this wiki article to setup iMON PAD remote control. Also have a look that article. It should help you setup VFD display.

It's doesn't matter :) Actually SSH session from the remote PC gives you the same possibilities like direct login to the core/hybrid.

Ok thank you, one last question.

is it enough to start the core and do that, or do i have to load the KDE Desktop?

Just start the core. KDE desktop is needed if you'd like to do some modifications directly on the core using some GUI utility.

You can use that script

https://www.assembla.com/spaces/linuxmce/documents/bQ0nA4Bgyr3QKceJe5aVNr/download/imon-pad-devicetemplate

to add template with LIRCd.conf automatically. Just assign it to the desire core or MD.

Look. The remote session via SSH gives you exactly (more or less) the same options as direct login to the Linux machine. I never login to my core/hybrid directly except I don't have network connection by some reason. All the rest operation such installing new packages, updating configuration, watching logs etc can be done via SSH.
