It's been so long that I can't remember if I was running a customized lirc config on my R5.5 box. In any case, I see that ~/.lircrc is linked to /etc/lircrc in R6. Mine contains one line:

Code:
include  /usr/MythVantage/templates/remotes/hauppauge-grey/lircrc-haupgrey.txt


I have my R5.5 backups and would like to restore my lirc config file. When I look in the backup's /home/mythtv/.lircrc is a 0-byte file. I don't have a lircrc in the backup's /etc at all. Which files am I looking for in the backup and is this as simply as commenting out the include line in /etc/lircrc and pasting the whatever file from my backup?

There are two files that need to be recovered from R5.5.
/home/mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc and
/etc/lirc/lircd.conf

just place both of those files in /etc on R6 and overwrite (or rename, if you're the cautious type) the sym links of the same name.

This worked great, jzigmyth. Thanks!

Graysky,

Be aware that at least /etc/lircrc is updated as part of a package -- not sure which, I just know my changes have been overwritten before.

I believe putting "etc/lircrc" in the pacman exclusions list should solve this problem, but I can't prove that.

You're totally right about the updates. I think I'd have to ignore the name of the package that does the updating though... I went ahead and made a backup of my personal copy and will hopefully remember if it gets overwritten!

Also if you go into the Service Menu->Remotes and exit via the "finish" button, your configuration files will be overwritten with what has been selected in the Remotes menu. If you exit via "cancel" or "esc" nothing will be touched.

I figured this would happen. Thanks for the headsup. The service menu is powerful, but I think I have mixed feelings about it for these sorts of reasons... what if someone else (wife, kid, etc.) messed with settings under the service menu? I'd like to see it locked down so only an authenticated user can even browse to it.

For future reference, to make this change, simply:

Code:
# nano cd /usr/MythVantage/templates/remotes/hauppauge-grey/mine.txt

<<paste the contents of your old ~/.mythtv/lircrc>>
<<for my remote, see the below text>>

# nano /etc/lircrc

<<change this to point to the file you just made>>


From here I would say just restart lircd but doing it on my box didn't work. It had to get rebooted for some reason.

Code:
# put this in /usr/MythVantage/templates/remotes/hauppauge-grey/
# then change /etc/lircrc to include it
#
# lircrc.example.HauppaugeGrey-nativelirc
