IR problems with Hauppauge Nova-S Plus
i'm a newbie and bought a Hauppauge Nova-S Plus card some days ago. I read about MythDora and I have chosen it for my first attempt to build a multimedia box. So the installation worked fine and after about two hours i was able to watch the first dvb-s stream on my machine.
However, i didn't succeeded in getting the IR control to work. I tried to load the kernel modules (ah, i forgot to mention that i'm using MythDora 2.32 which comes with a 2.6.16 kernel) like this
modprobe -i lirc_dev
modprobe -i lirc_i2c
Having a look with dmesg on the result, lirc_dev says that the IR Remote Control driver is registered, major 61.
Then I took a look at the /dev. But there I found only the /dev/lirc pointing to a /dev/lirc0 that didn't existed! Furthermore there's a device /dev/lircd. But i found out, that there's a /dev/input/event1, that should correspond to the IR receiver. (i took a look at /proc/bus/input/devices).
To further investigate my problem, i started the lircd manually, using the event1 device
lircd -n -d /dev/input/event1
In a second terminal I tried to start irw. At that moment the lircd crashed with the following message:
lircd-0.8.1-CVS: lircd(userspace) ready
lircd-0.8.1-CVS: accepted new client on /dev/lircd
lircd-0.8.1-CVS: could not get hardware features
lircd-0.8.1-CVS: this device driver does not support the new LIRC interface
lircd-0.8.1-CVS: major number of /dev/input/event1 is 13
lircd-0.8.1-CVS: LIRC major number is 61
lircd-0.8.1-CVS: check if /dev/input/event1 is a LIRC device
lircd-0.8.1-CVS: caught signal
So it seems that the driver and lirc are not cooperating. Are there any ideas that could help me, solving my problem?
