ATI Remote Wonder

ATI Remote Wonder
I would like to know how to make my old ATI Remote Wonder work with Kodi.

I checked the forums, and the only articles I found are from 2013 and people were working on the issue.

I tried the first steps from this page http://wiki.xbian.org/doku.php/remotes
and mode2 doesn't output anything.

When I plugged it in, the Arrow buttons worked automatically, but that's all.

This is the remote I am trying to use: http://www.boro.fr/assets/perso/ati_remote_wonder-b3601881cb0209ab44eb9fd7be4d1d7f9766e0315cc531a39217f6e999b0b505.png

lsusb returned this among other results:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bc7:0004 X10 Wireless Technology, Inc. X10 Receiver


Thanks for any help

RE: ATI Remote Wonder
I'm also having such a heavy bone which I was using for controlling XBMC many many years ago.

But I've decided never ever touch this piece of hardware again - makes IMO no sense Tongue

I guess it makes sense :-)

It's just it was laying there, and I though, maybe I can make a use of it.

Thanks

RE: ATI Remote Wonder
Maybe you're right. If I have much time and can remember where my old configs for this remote are I can post it here

RE: ATI Remote Wonder
The easiest way IMO is to use ir-keytable, just a good implementation without the hassle of lirc.

Never Say Never Again Big Grin

I modified package xbian-package-lirc to make X10 based RC's working again.

New packages are available in staging repo, so for testing please enable staging repo in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian.list and update kernel and lirc package.

Some additional notes:
  • USB Transmitter X10 will be autodetected. So make sure that transmitter is connected before starting lirc
  • lirc package is providing a special X10 Lircmap.xml. It will be copied during start of lirc to /home/xbian/.kodi/userdata if no user defined Lircmap.xml already exists
  • By adding some helpful messages you can control if autodetection is working by watching file /var/log/upstart/lirc.log. It should look like this

    Terminal

    cat /var/log/upstart/lirc.log
    *** LIRC hardware (autodetected) ***
    SECTION=X10
    LOAD_MODULES=
    DRIVER=default
    DEVICE=/dev/lirc0
    MODULES=
    Starting remote control daemon(s) : LIRC

RE: ATI Remote Wonder
Thank you very much!

I own this beauty:

and I have no money to change it.

You saved me.

However, there are some mistakes in the key mapping

Volume up and volume down are inverted
The "mute" key is not working, the "A" key mutes.

RE: ATI Remote Wonder
@Chiron

Please make changes as follows:

1) Set X10 type in file /etc/default/lirc

Code:
# In case of X10 remotes please set this variable
# to x10-atiwonder, x10-medion or x10-or32e

X10_CONF="x10-atiwonder"

There are many X10 remotes with different keymappings. So you have to define which one you have


2) Change name of remote in file /etc/lirc/remotes/x10-atiwonder.conf

Unfortunately there is typo in device name. So X10-ATIREMOTE has to be changed into X10-ATIWONDER

Quote:# brand: ATI Remote Wonder
# model no. of remote control: 5000023600
# devices being controlled by this remote: ATI USB Receiver
#
# Found on a linpvr.org forum, thanks.

begin remote

name X10-ATIWONDER
bits 40
eps 30
aeps 100

one 0 0
zero 0 0
gap 235966
toggle_bit 0

...


Finally restart lirc and kodi

Terminal

sudo restart lirc
kodi stop
kodi start

Thank you very much, I have sorted most of the issues. However i do still have an issue with getting the code of the mute key of the remote.
I will open another topic. Smile

RE: ATI Remote Wonder
Well since an update today my remote is not working anymore. The mapping of the buttons isn't working anymore. I'm confused. My configuration hasn't changed.

The log of lirc

Code:

RE: ATI Remote Wonder
Hmmm, seems you upgraded kernel from 4.4.x to 4.9.x. I checked this package, unfortunately the module lirc_atiusb is not there Sad

Have to fix it. If you don't want to wait for new kernel package, you can install older 4.4.x kernel package as workaround
