when i boot up only 4 buttons on the remote work (up down left rite).

when i run this:
Code:
echo none > /sys/class/rc/rc0/protocols
echo +lirc > /sys/class/rc/rc0/protocols
service lirc start
none of the buttons work in irw but i get junk output from cat /etc/lirc0 when i hit buttons.

has anyone gotten this remote to work ?

What remote are you precicely using, cause my AURC-002 MCE Remote worked flawlessly under Fedora 11.

But when looking at your lines:

Wouldnt the issue be that your IR reciever cant get connected to by your OS? > Do you have any other IR devices (such as old mobile phones or so) to test out?

Hmmm... it would be difficult to see or that it works without debugging myself...

What is an idea to try: (ill assume you are running a GUI since you want a MCE remote)
Go to "System Settings" > "Keyboard" > "QuickKeys tab"

Then try to change a programs keys with one of your remotes buttons. If it detects that at least it will detect your buttons, maybe not correctly but at least as a button(combination).

i had to copy http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/...cd.conf.mceusb to /etc/lirc/lircd.conf. now irw works as expected.
