I am using a Raspberry Pi Rev. B with a Medion X10 Remote (digitainer model with scroll wheel). My current OpenELEC version is 3.2.4. I found some appropriate hardware.conf, lircd.conf, lircmap.xml and keymap.xml in this and other forums. My remote is working quite well but I wondered why some button presses raise the same event. After some research I found out that the reason for this is the used evmap file, strictly speaking the file 03_0bc7_0006.evmap. See this excerpt:
I am using mid 2007 Mac Mini and I must say I am very happy with OpenElec efforts. Thanks for that.
I think the final thing would be if I could make my Apple Remote work with OpenElec. I have searched these forums and wiki and I must say that I still don't know how should I troubleshoot the issue. So if somebody might help me to right direction, I would be happy.
Once again: Thank you very much for trying to help me out with my problem through a teamviewer session, though we were not succesful. We found out that the name of the Home-key of the MCE-Remote is "KEY_MEDIA" and properly assigned it to "menu" in the lircmap.xml . We also assigned the proper function to "menu" in the remote.xml, but it did not work. Since everything was working fine up to version 3.2.3 it seems that we actually have come across a bug in version 3.2.4.
I'm sure the answer is out there however i have very limited time to search so i thought I'd pop the question.
I'm after a way to execute a .sh files from a keyboard press.
At the moment i have this working from XBMC's keyboard.xml nicely, by pushing F12 it will kill and restart XBMC... However, if XBMC locks up, then this will not work... Which sucks, because this is precisely why i want it.
i want openelec to process this command and not XBMC.
can it be done?
Since upgrading to the latest version OpenElec 3.2.4 my MCE-remote is not working properly anymore. At least the Home-Button does not trigger any function anymore - on all my four Media-PCs. Up to version 3.2.3 it had been working just fine.
Opening a terminal session and entering the "irw"-command gave me "KEY_MEDIA deviceinput" and "KEY_MEDIA_UP deviceinput" when I press the Home-Button once. I tried some adjustments in the lircmap.xml but with no effect.
I have been using XBMC for a few years on Windows 7. I have recently decided that I wanted to go the Openelec route with some new hardware. While I am familiar with XBMC, I am not a Linux guy by any stretch and not very comfortable with Openelec at all yet. I do currently have everything working the way I want it other than my remote. I use a Harmony 880 through a Microsoft model 1040 Remote Control and receiver 1.0A for Media Center PC with Windows. The Harmony and receiver both work fine...
I have been frustrated for hours trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong and I just found this thread. My keyboard.xml file works on my Windows 7 machine running standard XBMC, but the same keyboard.xml fails in Openelec. Based on my debug log, it doesn't appear that any custom keymap is being loaded on startup (despite that I have a keymap file in /storage/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/keyboard.xml). I have changed the 'keyboard.xml' filename to 'remote.xml' and lircmap.xml' to try and generate...
