Vero 4k and xbox one remote

Hi,

Please advise on the full command entered and the full output of the command would be helpful to.

Thanks Tom

osmc@osmc:/etc/lirc$ irrecord --driver=irman --device=/dev/ttyS0 MyRemote
Driver `irman’ not supported.
Supported drivers:

Not sure where you read that but that isn’t correct. You should try irrecord instead, after stopping Kodi, eventlircd and lircd_helper service.

Hi,

Apologies I think that was from the link I provided from the kodi wiki, just as an overview.

anyway sorry

regards Tom.

I’m confused
Don’t know what driver it is
is there a procedure available?

Not an expert here but what I read from Sam’s post

I would translate as

sudo systemctl stop Kodi
sudo systemctl stop eventlircd
sudo systemctl stop lircd_helper
irrecord

Thats why i am asking:… :smirk:

there is no service named Kodi or kodi
there is no service named lircd_helper

and which parameter must i use with irrecord…

Sorry my mistake
sudo systemctl stop Kodi should be sudo systemctl stop mediacenter
Not sure about lircd_helper check name with systemctl | grep lirc

I assume without parameter, only if that doesn’t give you any think can try irrecord -f -d /dev/lirc0

It work’s very fine :smile: (very easy… )

I repeat the steps to the success (maybe someone had the same problem)

su …

cd /etc/lirc
systemctl stop mediacenter
systemctl stop eventlircd
systemctl stop system-lircd_helper.slice

irrecord -f -d /dev/lirc0 configname.conf

Follow the instructions :blush:

rm lircd.conf

ln -s /etc/lirc/configname.conf lircd.conf

shutdown -r now :grin:

I’m sorry Sam - but after the update yesterday i must again double klick on the remote :weary:
Nothing has changed with the lircd.conf

You may need to to the ln -s command again. The update may have broken the symlink.

No… the symlink is ok and working…
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 Jun 24 19:32 lircd.conf -> /etc/lirc/xbox1gomi.conf
-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 14843 Jun 24 19:29 xbox1gomi.conf

Someone else reported this, so will investigate.

Any news to our problem? :worried:

Hi,

I’m back from my holiday in a couple of days. I’ve been keeping a close eye on the forum but I don’t have a lot of equipment to test with out here.

We have a solution – but it breaks things for other users. As you’ll remember in May, I posted and tried to get as much feedback as possible regarding the remote. But we can’t break things for hundreds of users to fix it for two. A fix will come but it will take time to develop it properly. For now, you may want to use an older version from osmc.tv/download.

I’ll let you know when we have something ready for testing

Cheers

Sam

oh holiday :slight_smile: sorry :slight_smile:
i don’t like a new installation :cry:

It’s okay, you won’t need to reinstall OSMC when the issue is resolved.

I’ve already sent you a PM with a proposed fix. Hopefully this resolves the issue for you

Recovery Install all Updates… (two times)
New irrecording (two times)
and the volume up/down channel up/down dont work :unamused:

Is there the possibility of a stable solution?
Slowly it is annoying

I believe the remote is stable now, in that others seem to be using it and the forum has quietened down.

It’s hard to speculate why those buttons aren’t working: are they detected in irrecord? Does it show them as being pressed in Kodi logs?
