Anyone getting MCEUSB Remote to work?

Mon Jun 04, 2012 8:24 pm

I'm trying to get a USB-Receiver
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0471:0815 Philips eHome Infrared Transceiver
to work, but I might miss something.
All HowTos I found say there should be a device in /dev/input/by-id/ but there is only my keyboard.
Is there a special way to setup this remote receivers in Archlinux? I know the RPi can handle it, because OpenElec works like a charme with it.

What info can I provide?

Found out the module mceusb is a kernel module. I Thought it was from lirc. So now I recompile the git-kernel like in the wiki described here: http://elinux.org/RPi_Kernel_Compilation#Arch_Linux.
I had an error reporting directory tools was allready there at the point were you download the tools for imagetools-uncompressed.py . I had to cd out of the kernel dir to do so.

The wiki does not understate when it says 6h for compiling the kernel.... I had it running over night ...

Return to “Arch”
