ir-keytable not recognizing hauppauge remote

Post by glen96 » Mon Jun 10, 2019 11:11 am

Ubuntu v 18.04.2 LTS. mythtv v 29.1, ir-keytable v 1.14.2-1 and remote control model VRC-1100.

With the help of https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/User_Manual ... _via_evdev and viewtopic.php?t=3011 I have been trying to program my remote control.

Started by installing ir-keytable:

Code: Select all

glen@myth-HP-BE2:~$ sudo apt install ir-keytable
[sudo] password for glen: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
ir-keytable is already the newest version (1.14.2-1).
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 10 not to upgrade.
Then tested terminal input, the result echoed numeric remote key presses. Good.

Next tried to determine the system recognition of the device:

Code: Select all

glen@myth-HP-BE2:~$ sudo ir-keytable
No devices found
That failed so I tried:

Code: Select all

lsmod | grep mce
no responce so that also failed.

Then listed the USB devises:
glen@myth-HP-BE2:~$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:8000 Intel Corp.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:8008 Intel Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 007: ID 05a4:9881 Ortek Technology, Inc. IR receiver [VRC-1100 Vista MCE Remote Control] <--------------
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 046d:c077 Logitech, Inc. M105 Optical Mouse
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 1a2c:0e24 China Resource Semico Co., Ltd
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Success, I have marked my remote controller with "<--------------".

My problem is I don't know what to do next. The controller seems to work and the USB device is recognized.

Thank you for any help that comes my way.

Cheers
Glen

If ir-krytable doesn't see your ir receiver then you need to fix that first. Might try and installing the mce driver (modprobe mceusb) and try again.
ir-keytable even sees the receivers in my tuner cards, but I don't use them. Once you get the receiver recognized, then you will need to create a keymap for your remote. I used these websites when I first started using ir-keytable some time back.
