ATI Remote Wonder R/C working

Post by rwillett » Wed Oct 04, 2006 3:21 pm

Hi,

I've got the ATI Remote R/C (5000023600) working and wanted to share a tip that seems to make a lot of difference.

I was having issues with the R/C sometimes not appearing to work, I'd press a key and it would be ignored, then the next time it would work. No idea why at all. For some reason I had an idea that the repeat option in the lircrc might be at issue, so in my lircrc file I changed "repeat = 5" to "repeat = 2" for all the key presses.

This tranformed my R/C, I was gobsmacked at the speed of response now and the fact that keys were not ignored. Now I'm sure other people know all of this but I didn't which is why I thought it might be useful to log it here.

Here are the relevant files just in case they are useful elsewhere

The lircrc file

Code: Select all

# ~/.mythtv/lircrc
# 
# MythTV native LIRC config file for
# the ATI-Wonder Remote
# using lirc_atiusb driver
# 

begin
prog = mythtv
button = a
config = E
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = b
config = O
repeat = 2
end

#begin
#prog = mythtv
#button = tv
#config = Key Alt-T CurrentWindow
#repeat = 2
#end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = stop
config = Esc
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = stop
config = Esc
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = fastforward
config = Right
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = rewind
config = Left
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = pip
config = V
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = pause
config = P
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = pause

repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = play

repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = mute
config = F9
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv

end

end

begin

repeat = 2
end

begin

repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = ok
config = Enter
repeat = 2
end

#begin
#prog = mythtv
#button = 3
#config = Key Page_Up CurrentWindow
#repeat = 2
#end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = select
config = Return
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = 1
config = 1
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = 2
config = 2
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = 3
config = 3
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = 4
config = 4
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = 5
config = 5
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = 6
config = 6
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = 7
config = 7
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = 8
config = 8
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = 9
config = 9
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = 0
config = 0
repeat = 2
end

begin
prog = mythtv
button = record
config = R
repeat = 2
end 

begin
prog = mythtv
button = check
config = Enter
repeat = 2
end

and here is the lircd.conf file
