I have an old RPI-1 running OSMC as a Mythtv Frontend. I recently tried updating it to “Buster”.
It all worked except for one reason, one button on my IR remote control no longer works (the rest do, and it used to work).
My remote is and old Western-Digital “live” remote and I am just using the lircd.conf file that already exists for it (and the same one worked previously). The key that does not work anymore is the “OK” key.
In “mode2” I get numbers when I push the button. On IRW (which was looking in the wrong place for the pipe file by default), it doesn’t. Other buttons produce correct commands. The version of lirc that is running is 0.9.4.3 coming from OSMC’s repository. I get lots of dependency problems if I try to install Raspian Buster’s 0.10 version. I have an RPI-4 running Debian Buster-64bit with the 0.10 version of lirc and it works too (running Myth Frontend, not OSMC).
I can put in my old “Stretch” version of OSMC into the same hardware and all works fine. (lirc ver: 0.9.0).
I can’t figure out what would make just one button not work!
