I'm trying to get the remote fully working but have struggled.
Initially I didnt have /dev/lirc so I've added a symbolic link to /dev/lirc1
irw gives me an error that says "connect: No such file or directory" - I can't find a log file that shows any more detail about that.
Running mode2 does give lots of output after i map /dev/lirc to the /dev/lirc1
Running ir-keytable -d /dev/input/event12 -t shows all the events for the keys being pressed.
(ir-keytable -t without specifying the device does not work with the remote since the default device is the keyboard not the remote)
I'm not sure how to proceed from here.
I think I might need to edit some lirc config files to tell it to keep doing what it's doing for the keyboard but to use the ir-keytables for the RC6 remote ( ? )
Currenty my hardware.conf says
