first of all, thank you very much for all your hard work to put those images together. You’ve done an incredible job.
My setup is a Wandboard quad with your v0.0.6 yocto image. I have been able to go all the way to issue an “irw” command with success. The lircd is running and gets well any key that I send from my Apple TV2 remote. So far so good. The problem is that XBMC does not seem to get any command from the remote and after several hours of testing I am totally desperate. I have tried many config files for XBMC and lirc with no success.
It be great if you could give me a hand and head me to the right direction, namely where do I start to debug this problem.

You have done the hardest part of the work..
To get it running with xbmc you will have to do 2 additional things :
– Launch xbmc with correct “-l” option so that XBMC reads lirc inputs
/imx6/xbmc/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin -l /dev/lirc0
– Configure correctly ~/.xbmc/userdata/Lircmap.xml
Check http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Userdata/lircmap.xml for more info
Tell me if you need more help..

Hello Stephan, thank you very much for your answer.
I have setup the file you mentioned and issued the xbmc-bin you suggested with no success. Do please allow me to show you what I got so far:
iwr command result:

I think everything is ok … what would you suggest to test now ?
PepeJuly 16, 2014 at 14:03 #2106Pepe AnguitaGuest
The last line in the rc.local file is now the one you suggested with -l lirc0July 16, 2014 at 14:55 #2107Pepe AnguitaGuest
I have enable debug mod and found out the following lines in the /home/root/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log
11:01:24 T:738545664 INFO: LIRC Initialize: using: /dev/lirc0 11:01:24 T:738545664 DEBUG: Failed to connect to LIRC. Giving up.
For some reason xbmc is not able to connect to LIRC. What would you suggest ?
Any help is appreciated, best regards

One step ahead, I am starting xmbc like this:
/imx6/xbmc/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin --lircdev /var/run/lirc/lircd
I set up debug mode on xbmc and I find key presses of my remote in the log file /home/root/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log
14:08:12 T:738549760 DEBUG: LIRC: Update - NEW at 441794:0000000077e1d087 00 up "AppleRemote" (up) 14:08:13 T:738549760 DEBUG: LIRC: Update - NEW at 442527:0000000077e1d087 00 up "AppleRemote" (up) 14:08:14 T:738549760 DEBUG: LIRC: Update - NEW at 443044:0000000077e1d087 00 up "AppleRemote" (up) 14:08:14 T:738549760 DEBUG: LIRC: Update - NEW at 443777:0000000077e11087 00 left "AppleRemote" (left)
It seems that right now xbmc is “receiving” the commands from the remote but there is some sort of problem translating them.July 17, 2014 at 08:58 #2115Pepe AnguitaGuest
XBMC is not reacting on my remote. Any hint Stephan ?. I´d appreciate it.
PepeJuly 17, 2014 at 20:52 #2117stephanKeymaster
Sorry for my late answer
Several remarks :
* First note that -l or –lircdev is the same option (short or gnu long formats but they are the same)
* If the socket /var/run/lirc/lircd works it is very likely because you run (event)lircd which is just fine if it is your preferred way of doing it…
Now it just works : You have properly associated lirc buttons to xbmc buttons !
It seems that you still need to associate xbmc buttons to xbmc actions and it shoud be done by the file remote.xml as it will tell XBMC how to map real actions to the buttons…
I think default remote.xml would just be ok : just copy it :
cp /imx6/xbmc/share/xbmc/system/keymaps/remote.xml /home/root/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/

thanks very much for your help !
I finally got to work a different remote, a Syabas a200 from a Popcorn hour network player
Your suggestion about remote.xml was very spotted, I had also to put Lircmap.xml in /home/root/.xbmc/userdata/Lircmap.xml and customize it a litte bit to make it work. For the ones interested, I added the following to the stock Lircmap.xml:
<lircmap> <remote device="Syabas_A-100"> <left>KEY_LEFT</left> <right>KEY_RIGHT</right> <up>KEY_UP</up> <down>KEY_DOWN</down> <select>KEY_SELECT</select> <!-- <enter>KEY_SELECT</enter> <title>KEY_INFO</title> <start>KEY_HOME</start> <back>KEY_BACK</back> <record>KEY_RECORD</record> <play>KEY_PLAY</play> <pause>KEY_PAUSE</pause> <stop>KEY_STOP</stop> <forward>KEY_FORWARD</forward> <reverse>KEY_REWIND</reverse> <volumeplus>KEY_PAGEUP</volumeplus> <volumeminus>KEY_PAGEDOWN</volumeminus> <pageplus>KEY_CHANNELUP</pageplus> <pageminus>KEY_CHANNELDOWN</pageminus> <skipplus>KEY_NEXT</skipplus> <skipminus>KEY_AGAIN</skipminus> <mute>KEY_MUTE</mute> <power>KEY_POWER</power> <myvideo>KEY_VIDEO</myvideo> <mymusic>KEY_AUDIO</mymusic> <mytv>LiveTV</mytv> <one>KEY_1</one> <two>KEY_2</two> <three>KEY_3</three> <four>KEY_4</four> <five>KEY_5</five> <six>KEY_6</six> <seven>KEY_7</seven> <eight>KEY_8</eight> <nine>KEY_9</nine> <zero>KEY_0</zero> <red>KEY_RED</red> <green>KEY_GREEN</green> <yellow>KEY_YELLOW</yellow> <blue>KEY_BLUE</blue> <menu>KEY_DVD</menu> <clear>KEY_CLEAR</clear> </remote>
I will keep trying to make the Apple remote working, is got to be easier now. My next step is to make the wifi workin, guess I´ll open another thread to talk about this…
cheers and thank you again Stephan.
