I have installed Mythbuntu 12.04 on an AMD dual core.
Basic TV play and record functions are working, but I am having some troubles with the remote. The card is a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR 1250.
I have looked at How do you get the remote to work on my Hauppage TV card?. In the Mythbuntu control centre, I went the Infrared and changed the remote to Hauppage HVR-1100. It didn't seem to work, so I tried regular stuff like checking the voltage on the batteries (1.5V) and making sure the IR cable was plugged in the right place.
I stopped lirc with
sudo service lirc stop. It failed because it could not find /sys/class/rc/*/.
ls /dev/l* but there was no lirc0 or lirc1.
cat /proc/bus/input/devices to find input devices, but nothing in the list looks like an IR-receiver.
I looked at /etc/lirc/hardware.conf. Here are some of the important lines:
REMOTE="Hauppauge HVR-1100" REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/lirc0" REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF="hauppauge/lircd.conf/hauppauge"
I tried pressing several keys on the Hauppauge remote and then looking at the tail of /var/log/kern.log, but no keystrokes seem to be coming through.
Can you help me trace the IR signal? I don't actually have confidence that anything is coming through.
