Microsoft Media Center Usb Remote Control

The MCE remote has been branded with the mark of the beast, but it is a very usefull device for controlling a media center pc.

First: verify if the usb identity of the device matches the ID below. In case of a older version, the mceusb already availble through lirc-0.7.1 should work.

{{{[root@freevo ~]# lsusb Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0471:0815 Philips}}}

I use Fedora Core 4 with a lirc-0.7.1 version on board

{{{[root@freevo ~]# rpm -q lirc lirc-0.7.1-3}}}

Everything you need to install


You need either to modify /etc/init.d/lirc to start up the device /dev/lirc0 or make a link from /dev/lirc to /dev/lirc0

You could use irw to check the keys pressed and modify /etc/freevo/lircrc
