New MCE remote addon - IriDium - 10th Jan, 2014 02:30 AM

Can someone who has a MCE remote see if this Addon works.

It will need to be downloaded directly and installed as a zip file (It may not even install!!)

If it does work, it could eliminate many of the MCE remote problems we see.

I can't find that one (tried search too) or install it from zip (no correct structure).

I followed these installing instructions:

Ok thanks - looks like it's a non starter then.

will this work with a GPIO IR Receiver? would be cool if it could pick up my MCE Remote without further configuration

@freem@n I don't think this addon works in Xbian at the moment.

There was a thread a couple of months ago all about getting GPIO receivers to work under Xbian.

I think, from memory, it had something to do with loading the module lirc-rpi. Maybe do a search on that and see what you get. I also believe that it was loaded into the latest upgrades.
