For some reason since the upgrade to 8.4 my remote repeats sending commands on a single button press.
Code:
00000000000017a5 00 OK Hauppauge_350
00000000000017a5 00 OK_UP Hauppauge_350
00000000000017a5 00 OK Hauppauge_350
00000000000017a5 00 OK_UP Hauppauge_350

I'm also having problems with my HD_PVR,

Prior to the upgrade I always loaded my own HD_PVR support
[code]##########################################
#!/bin/bash
##########################################
#
# Loads HDPVR Support
#
##########################################
modprobe lirc_zilog
/usr/sbin/lircd -r -d /dev/lirc1 --output=/var/run/lirc/lircd1 --pidfile=/var/run/lirc/lircd1.pid --listen=8761
exit 0[/code

Since the update it looks like this is being loaded during startup.

Something is causing a problem with the HDPVR because it will only play for about 5 minutes then it start to stutter and eventually locks up (screen freeze). I can change to another tuner and change back and it will work ok for another 5 minutes or so and then it starts again.

Any suggestions on what's causing the extra commands, or the HDPVR? I have a feeling the two are related.

Thanks

Not making much progress but have a found out a few things, First a little about the config.

My machine configuration includes a HD5500 tuner which has a built in Ir receiver, HDHomerun and hd_pvr which also has a built in ir receiver and blaster.

This configuration worked fine in 8.3, and I loaded lirc_zilog myself and then configured the lirc with a script file.

I did find that by removing the hd_pvr from the system, configuring the remote files, telling the Remote setup to use a Default receiver. I can get the remote to respond correctly.

How ever as soon as I connect the hd_pvr it automatically configures another ir receiver loads lirc_zilog and the multiple commands start right away making the remote usable.

Help!!

I do not use the IR on the HD-PVR, however it is causing me problems. I posted to the mythtv-users mailing list and it was suggested there the kernel version we are using is likely the issue.

Thanks for the information I knew there had to be a problem somewhere.

I'm thinking about going back to R8.3 but not sure if I can do that or not?

Britney can I just do an iso install upgrade using a R8.3 DVD and then import the saved database that's created during the R8.4 upgrade?

Thanks

No because the db would be myth .28 and the R8.3 pkgs are myth .27. You could maybe (BIG Maybe) Frankenstein the kernel back to the R8.3 pkg as long as you install the associated nvidia pkgs too. I really don't recommend this.

I am confused here. Are you wanting to use IR on the HDPVR? If so how many lircd processes are running? Is the lirc_zilog module being loaded automatically?

I have always used the ir on the HD5500 and the blaster on the hd_pvr and had no problems in the past.

Here is my current status, HDhomerun, HD5500 using the "default" setting on the remotes configuration. At this point all is well the remote works using my custom txt & config files. There is only one lirc0.

After a reboot with the hd_pvr connected it then has lirc0 and lirc1, now automatically loads lirc_zilog and creates the second /usr/bin/lircd -r -d /dev/lirc1

All is good at this point but it also now activates the ir receiver in the hd_pvr as well. So now I start getting repeats of each remote button press. (That's problem #1) Once I tune to a channel it will only play for about 5 - 10 minutes it starts with a stutter and then the hdpvr box hangs. I can block

If you select exit the screen goes blank will eventually go back to the main menu, but the hd_pvr is hung and you can't access it, when you try to reboot it gives you ir unresponsive messages. Then you have to power off the hd_pvr (it apparently thinks it's still recording as the red light stays on).

So that's basically where I am at this point. Sounds like bobmyth it having a similar issue.

I had the exact same double button problem after upgrading. I am not at my system right now but in my case, it is the system lircd.conf (the one that only has an include statement in it; maybe /etc/lircd.conf???). After upgrading, mine had two include statements. I deleted one and all was back to normal. See if you can find that and take a look to see if it is duplicated. If you cant find it let me know and I will reply tonight.

I have seen the double entry before as well. Unfortunately that not the problem this time.

The hd_pvr's receiver becomes active during startup and that receiver is the one that is sending the second. I proved this by covering the receiver on the hd_pvr. Once covered I don't get the repeated commands by the remote, but doesn't fix the lockup on the hd_pvr.

Looks like this is the same problem I have.
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/m ... ers/603441
The suggestion is to create hdpvr.conf
Code:
blacklist lirc_zilog
install rc_core /bin/false
install rc_hauppauge /bin/false

I do however use the blaster,
Since I'm not really sure what this does can anyone explain?
What entries would I need to use this approach?

Putting that file with those commands in /etc/modprobe.d should keep the kernel from automatically loading the module. You should still be able to load lirc_zilog manually with your script.

Britney thank you for the information.

After a little trial and error I figured out that I needed both rc_core and rc_hauppauge to get the remote to work.

However by using blacklist lirc_zilog as you said kept it the module from loading.

The benefit from not having it load a startup was that the IR receiver on the hd_pvr is never discovered or configured! No receiver, no more problems.

I am now able to load lirc_zilog like I did in the past.

So in /etc/modprobe.d I now have a hdpvr.conf with one entry blacklist lirc_zilog

Problem resolved. Thank you bobmyth and Britney for pointing me in the right direction.

Did the blacklist also fix the studder & lockups?

Yes it fixed the studder & lockups.

I'm sure the studder and lockups were end result of the incessant kernel polling the IR
receiver on the hd_pvr.
Code:
Sep 24 09:45:38 mythtv kernel: [ 382.084789] i2c i2c-4: polling the IR
receiver chip failed, trying reset
Sep 24 09:45:39 mythtv kernel: [ 383.184941] i2c i2c-4: i2c_master_send
failed with -110
Sep 24 09:45:39 mythtv kernel: [ 383.184947] i2c i2c-4: polling the IR
