I've got that file all set up, my hardware.conf for lirc is pasted below:
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE="Compro Videomate U500"
#Chosen IR Transmitter
#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
# Default configuration files for your hardware if any
#Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration
#If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application
#that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive
#frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER
#It will then populate all other variables without any user input
#If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure
#to leave this set to "false"
My /etc/lirc/lircd.conf contains the contents of the lircd.conf file you
linked to. Like I said previously, the only way I know the thing is seeing
keypresses is by looking at dmesg or the syslog - evtest and irw pick up
nothing, nor does xev or anything else I know to test with. I think lirc is
properly configured, insofar as i can change the device to point to my
multimedia keyboard using the devinput driver which can then be picked up by
I do know the actual tuner is receiving the remote keypresses because of the
changes to the codes listed in syslog...
Hope this helps you (help me ;) )
