Problems finding IR hardware

  • I am running Libreelec off an SD card on an AMLOGIC S905X - Branded as MAG410.


    I have great performance and CEC works well but I'd like to use the factory remote specifically because of poweroff-poweron.


    The problem is even using the android remote.conf the remote buttons don't work. I believe this may have something to do with the IR receiver not being detected.


    If I run from ssh I get the following error:


    Code
    1. # ir-keytable
    2. /sys/class/rc/: No such file or directory

    Any idea how I can debug this?

  • what version of Libreelec are you using?


    for earlier versions, up to 8.2. something or other remote.conf repository

  • I'm using 8.2.4.2.


    I tried following the forum post to create a remote.conf from scratch using debug option and reading dmesg, but no button presses are being captured.


    The remote works well using the stock android though.

  • Let's start from scratch.


    You want to use the remote as you want the function of power on/power off. I'm not an expert but I am not too sure these boxes can be powered on/off via remote. Normally a power recycle is needed.


    To assist: Please provide a full debug log as explained in my signature and also the output of dmesg | paste

    Forget about power on/power off. I just want to be able to use the IR remote.


    Here are the logs:

  • Remotes are a PITA - there are so many variants with each having their own protocols, that is almost impossible to support.


    This might help IR. Also others have reported success with FLIRC. I personally gave in and just use a KB.

  • Hello! I need help. I have an Android box. I launch LE on a pendrive, but remote control does not work. I saved the remote.conf from android to the Le Config directory, but nothing went wrong. Whatever you press on the remote control, it does not look like a box led.

    How did you get on when you read the posts just above this one?
