I have a USB-UIRT which is connected to an Eeebox EB1012p. With much trial and error, I eventually got it working with eventlircd:
Now the remote works across standby and wake, but each time the host goes to sleep and then wakes up, another /dev/ttyUSBx gets created and another lircd gets started.
What do I need to do to get the lircd processes to exit on sleep/standby? This seems to be related to getting the USB-UIRT to wake the host - everything I've read says that it won't do it if lircd is holding the device when it enters standby.
Added the following line to minimyth.conf:
Now lircd gets stopped when entering sleep. udev and eventlircd take care of starting it back up after sleep.
Wasn't able to change the MM_LIRC_DEVICE from /dev/persistent/ttyUSB-usb:0403:f850::00 back to /dev/ttyUSB0. For some reason it wasn't starting up lircd, even on initial boot.
So the settings for the USB-UIRT are as follows:
