I have an Asus S1-AT5NM10E HTPC which has an integrated IR receiver. On Ubuntu 12.04, I have installed XBMC, but when I press "OK", "Vol +/-" or "Back" on my MCE remote (in fact, a Logitech Harmony 300i configured to emulate an MCE remote), XBMC doesn't seem to detect the signals. However, arrow buttons do work well.
I know that the faulty buttons are detected by the computer because, when I run
cat /dev/lirc0, a bunch of weird characters are displayed each time I press one of them. The IR receiver is also able to detect a completely different remote (TV) because another family of characters were displayed.
I have installed
sudo apt-get install lirc) to see the output of
irw didn't output anything.
ir-keytable, I could determinate the integrated IR receiver is from Nuvoton:
$ ir-keytable Found /sys/class/rc/rc0/ (/dev/input/event4) with: Driver nuvoton-cir, table rc-rc6-mce Supported protocols: NEC RC-5 RC-6 JVC SONY LIRC other Enabled protocols: LIRC Extra capabilities: <access denied>
Why are some buttons not working? How can I make them work?
