Microsoft MCE (1039) remote configuration - degauss5 - 13th Feb, 2013 06:57 AM

Hello:

I hace the Microsoft MCEUSB (1039) remote working with XBIAN alpha 4. I have 2 problems:

1. IRW comand show all buttons except the numeric buttons, so these buttons don't work.

2. When using the remote in the program following buttons, that are recognized in IRW, don't work:

DVD MENU - KEY_DVD devinput
GUIDE - KEY_EPG devinput (contextual menu)

I suspect the second problem is that those keys are not linked to the correct XBMC commands.

Also, I have the remote configuration file for the remote (100% working) for the XBMC in a PC running UBUNTU 12 OS.

In the "lircd.conf" I have 4 configuration files (come in XBIAN). I have tried to include the "XBMC UBUNTU" configuration file, but it doesn't work.

I suspect this could be the same assignation problem...

┬┐Any help?

Can you do:
Code:
sudo wget -O - https://raw.github.com/xbianonpi/xbian/xbian-alpha5/etc/lirc/remotes/devinput.conf > /etc/lirc/remotes/devinput.conf
sudo /etc/init.d/lirc restart

Ok, I'll try tonigh!!!


RE: Microsoft MCE (1039) remote configuration - degauss5 - 14th Feb, 2013 06:38 AM

I have made the changes and don't work.
But I have copied the first part of the code in /etc/lirc/lircd.conf and now IRW shows all the keys!!!! Great.

But in the program, whe I try to use the NUMBERS/LETTERS (for example to write in a search box) they don't work.

Also, when I try to show the contextual menu (mouse right button) it doesn't work
GUIDE - KEY_EPG devinput

Neither the
DVD MENU - KEY_DVD devinput

This is sure an assignation problem but in what file the assignation of keys is asigned to specific features of the program????

Thanks

Can you post the output of lsusb, dmesg and cat /proc/bus/input/devices?

And please don't thinker with the /etc/lirc/lircd.conf yourself because it will be overwritten by the update.

Can you share that file with us?

I had the exact same problem. I eventually switch to openelec although it isn't as good as Xbian as far as performance on the pi - but it did sort the issue with the number buttons not working.

If there is anything I can provide that will help this I would be happy to - I want to get back to xbian!!

@wolfylee, did you follow my guide?

The one above? No but I'll try it now and report back in half an hour.

If you mean the wiki then I tried that but no config I could find would make irw see the number buttons. I tried making my own with irrecord but the pi is so far from my pc that to go through it properly would wear out my slippers! Smile

The new devinput.conf file didn't change anything for me - IRW still doesn't see the number buttons.

@wolfylee, can you put the content of /etc/lirc/hardware/mceusb_event2.conf in /etc/lirc/hardware/custom.conf and restart lirc.

Didn't seem to like that at all:

Here is the output when I restart lirc : http://pastebin.com/kB42NCUV

I replaced the contents of /etc/lirc/hardware/custom.conf : http://pastebin.com/8K6SWHkf

With the contents of /etc/lirc/hardware/mceusb_event2.conf : http://pastebin.com/qWaBjwk8

The remote responds to less buttons than before - the ok button isn't working now and the number buttons are still bodged. I can reload my openelec setup(thanks to the maginificent xbian backup/installer) - is there anything in there that I can consult that might shed light on what the issue could be? Remote is pretty much perfect on there - OS is too sluggish for me though.
