Getting my Gyration remote to work.....
« on: August 17, 2009, 03:34:04 am »
to control my BD DVD Player and Satellite box that is.

I am not able to get the arrow keys and the number keys to work.

After doing much reading and posts as old as March 2006 (http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?action=printpage;topic=709.0) and getting tips from Thom on IRC, I am still at a loss.

I know that I need to change the ScreenType to a proper Remote type to get this functionality to work, I am not sure if the DesignObj that I think I need to modify is the correct one. Here is the snippet of my Dcerouter.log

From the log files, I am thinking that my Screen # is 252 and my designObj is 5418. Is that a correct assumption? and I changed the ScreenType to 'N' and did a reboot+full regen but to no avail.

Thanks,
Stallione.

5418 is a remote for a satellite and cable box.

A new designobj needs to be created for your blu-ray player, OR, you need to change your media type for your device template to be np_DVD.

You can do this by going into wizard > av devices > av properties,

select change/explain from inputs

change the media type from LiveTV to DVD.

Save.

Reload Router

Regenerate orbiters.

Thom,

The media type is already set to DVD.
(This is what I had selected when I created the template)

Not sure why it doesn't work?
