Remote MLD XBMC

  • Does anyone know exactly how to make remote work in XBMC?? works perfect in MLD VDR, but not when I open XBMC. using MCE remote andor Parex Media Remote. Both work perfect in VDR...??? I wold ask in the MLD forum, but I am still not allowed to post there?? not sure why.


    Thank You

  • Hi,


    do you have answer to the registration email, you get from the MLD forum? This is necessary to activate your Fotum account.


    I think to remember, that there is a problem in the MLD, with lircd.conf files that contains more than one remote configurations, and the automatically generation of the xbmc remote config.
    Please check if you have such a lircd.conf file.

  • Well that doesn't work either,?? I setup MLD remote on quick setup page and selected mce remote, it downloads and install everything needed then I needed to add this to VDR call arguments in setup/tv/vdr " --lirc=/var/run/lirc/lircd" from web interface. otherwise it didn't work after restart. lircd conf file is empty doing it this way but after looking thru lirc map in forum it says it should work if I add that to xbmc start line, but I don't know how to do that, I looked and cant figure out.


    as for MLD forum, I registered 3 times, never got registration email at hotmail address or private pop3????

  • Ok here is what is happening, when xbmc is opened from apps in menu VDR does not stop or let go of remote. in other words remote is still controlling VDR when XBMC is started. Any idea how to fix this?

  • Hi,


    you must not enter any think to the vdr command line to make lirc running. This will be done automatically, but not to the lirc command, but to the xineliboutput arguments. In this way, if xbmc will be tart, and the xineliboutput will be stopped, lirc will also disconnect from the VDR automatically. I don't know, why do you need to add the --lirc argument to the VDR to make it running well. I have never heared this before. Witch VDR front end do you use? xineliboutput or softhddevice?

  • I am using xineliboutput, but it does the same thing with softhddevice, I don't know why I need command for remote either, but that is the only way it would work after reboot. in vdr start command it is ( -l 1 ) normally mine looks like this now to make remote work ( -l 1 --lirc=/var/run/lirc/lircd ) and remote works,
    I tried playing with xine command but it didn't work this is what it looks like normally ( -l none -r 37890 ) .
    But the problem is this I am sure.
    In remote section
    Remote Control = Blank
    Lirc Driver = lirc serial
    Lirc Call Arguments = /dev/ttyS0 uart none
    Lirc Remote = blank


    edit lircd_conf shows a Blank file.


    This is the way it looks after initial install using remote-autodetect and selecting MCE remote on USB, then it downloads and installs dvb-remote,eventlircd,
    and inputlirc


    I was going thru Yavdr to see how they do it and they run a script that stops remote in vdr before xbmc starts, where it is then attached to xbmc and disconnects upon close of xbmc and restarts remote for vdr, I could find Nothing in MLD, and I looked in every folder on system??

  • So where am I going wrong in the remote setup??


    By using remote autodetect,
    I uninstalled inputlirc :D and then setup in remote section, all that is needed is
    dvb-remote,eventlircd,irkeytable. I did have to modify a couple buttons for my Parex remote, but all works now and even in XBMC.
