Where on the FS do the lircrc files for the various remotes reside?

/usr/MythVantage/templates/remotes/ has a large list of remotes. Each one has a lircd.conf and lircrc file.

With the new location what happens to custom configuration? I have used the same remote and kept the same configuration through countless upgrades but the config files were located in the home directories. It looks as though the lircrc file in ~/.mythtv is still there and contains an include directive for the template in MythVantage. What is the correct way to customize your remote so that it will persist through future upgrades.

I have had to do a fresh install of 6.02. I saved my lircd.con and lircrc files (Logitech Harmony remote). I have now copied them to their own folder on /usr/MythVantage/templates/remotes/.

However, they do not show up on the linhes setup. I suspect that there needs to be a symlink from somewhere.

Please, does anyone know the correct locations and links for the remote files?


@Oz - they won't. The setup script is I believe independent of the files in the folders.

@ponley - Correct way? I dunno how the LH scripts work. Best thing to do is use the service menu. If you have a custom setup, I don't think there is a way you can easily edit the service menu. Here's how I do it:

1) Keep the symlink ~/.mythtv
Code:
lircrc -> /etc/lircrc


2) Edit /etc/lircrc to your liking, e.g.
Code:
include "/usr/MythVantage/templates/remotes/hauppauge-grey/mine.txt"


3) Make sure that your /etc/lircd.conf is also to your liking,
Code:
include "/usr/MythVantage/templates/remotes/hauppauge-grey/lircd-haupgrey.conf"


See the Arch Lirc article for more. Note that the following two files will work with a Hauppauge Grey Remote only; I post them as examples.

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

With the new location what happens to custom configuration? I have used the same remote and kept the same configuration through countless upgrades but the config files were located in the home directories. It looks as though the lircrc file in ~/.mythtv is still there and contains an include directive for the template in MythVantage. What is the correct way to customize your remote so that it will persist through future upgrades.

If you choose "tinker" for your remote type in the LinHES service menu, it will preserve your lirc files.

Thanks Graysky. Your post must have overlapped the deletion of my post after I thought of a quick and dirty way of fixing my problem. I just selected an existing remote folder (Streamzap) and copied the contents of my lircd.conf and lircrc into the streamzap files whilst leaving the streamzap file names unchanged.

Then in the Linhes service menu, I selected the streamzap remote and receiver, restarted and voila! remote now works.

As far as I know, streamzap remote is coupled to an IR USB receiver; does your trick would work to install customised config files for an IR serial home-brew receiver ? I am looking at Thomson RCT311DA2 remote, coupled to a serial receiver I built; its lircd.conf file is available on Lirc website.

BTW, how to populate a lircrc file on R6.02.00, when only lircd is available ? Do parameters in lircrc file have to be tuned according to the keybindings wiki page at mythtv.org, or are they specific to LinHES ? Anyway, it seems to be a pain to do.

Yes, you need the mythtv key codes. I just followed this guide as I have a harmony remote: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Logitech_Harmony_Generic_Setup

It is not hard. Once you have created your files, it is really only a copy and paste into an existing profile. As I already had a streamzap rc with a usb IR, all I was doing was transferring the key commands to match my Harmony remote.

As you have noticed, my connection was usb. Sorry, I can't help with a serial connection. I think it is possible to buy serial to usb converters at electronic shops, but I do not know if that is a good solution for you.

You may also want to look at http://lircconfig.commandir.com/. I just tried to access the site but I had trouble getting past the first page.
