nova-t 500 remote only works on cold boot, not after reboot

  • Hi,
    I found this thread yavdr 4.0; grey hauppauge remote on nova-t 500
    Probably you were absolutely right it's a driver related issue - but it seems it existed with v4l-dvb-dkms already.
    Are there any hints within the output of dmesg if there is a problem loading the firmware?


    There are two other recognized IR-receivers attached to your VDR - probably you could use them, too.

    It appears that the only significant difference is the line "dib0700: rc submit urb failed"


    A google search turns up a few other people with the same problem, but no apparent solution. Am wondering if some recent dib0700 cleanups would possibly fix the issue? See eg. http://patchwork.linuxtv.org/patch/9858/


    I assume there's no way to run more recent kernels except using the test repositories?

    Well, there's one additional nova-t 500 card with the same problem, and the driver for the other, a c1501 dvb-c card doesn't implement generic RC-5 reception as the nova-t 500 does.

    What protocols are supported by this card?

    Code
    1. sudo ir-keytable
