In efforts to get current, add a few capabilities to my system and gain a
little more stability I've recently wiped my MythTV BE system and installed
FC14 (126.96.36.199-83.fc14.i686.PAE) and MythTV .24. from ATRPMS So far I
have "almost" everything working.
One of the misbehaving components is LIRC .. Whenever I press a remote key,
I get at least 2 keypresses in the UI. I'm guessing this is due to both the
imbedded LIRC support in .24 and LIRC running together? How do I turn the
imbedded version off?
echo none +lirc > /sys/class/rc/rc0/protocols
which results in:
[root at frontend rc0]# cat protocols
[rc-5] [nec] [rc-6] [jvc] [sony] [lirc]
This option doesn't seem to make any difference.
I've also seen a thread on this where Jarod and others were discussing this
issue and mentioned pointing lirc at /dev/lirc0 - not exactly sure what they
meant here (simple symbolic link in the /dev directory maybe?)
I can disable LIRC but when I do, not all of the keys on the remote work.
At this point I see 2 options:
1) Disable LIRC and work with the built in LIRC Support - Only if I
can figure out how to get the keys to work properly
2) Disable the built in LIRC support and revert to LIRC - only if I can
get the built in LIRC to quit interfering
Any instructions? Links? Insights?
The other issue is a burst of static at the beginning of playback.. but I'll
have to address that one later.. I've heard it's caused by something in
