[ubuntu] Remote control on HP Pavilion dv6-1410em


Hi,
I am trying to setup LIRC but I have problems. I'm using lircd 0.8.6
and I have HP pavilion notebook with RC-6 remote control. I created
config file with irrecord which is:

Code:
# Please make this file available to others
# by sending it to <lirc@bartelmus.de>
#
# this config file was automatically generated
# using lirc-0.8.6(default) on Mon Jul 26 22:34:25 2010
#
# contributed by
#
# brand:                       lircd.conf
# model no. of remote control:
# devices being controlled by this remote:
#

begin remote

 name  lircd.conf
 bits            8
 flags RC6
 eps            30
 aeps          100

 header       2782   896
 one           482   396
 zero          482   396

         KEY_DVD                  0xDB
         KEY_UNKNOWN              0x7F

         KEY_UP                   0xE1
         KEY_LEFT                 0xDF

         KEY_MUTE                 0xF1
         KEY_VOLUMEUP             0xEF
         KEY_VOLUMEDOWN           0xEE
     end codes

end remote

I found another config for my controller which has same values.
Nevertheless with this config I cannot get anything recognized with
irw! I tried to create config with RAW codes but all I can get is:
Code:
Please enter the name for the next button (press <ENTER> to finish recording)
KEY_POWER

Now hold down button "KEY_POWER".
Got it.
Signal length is 68
That's weird because the signal length must be odd!
Try again.
Got it.
Signal length is 68

Try again.
Got it.
Signal length is 62
That's weird because the signal length must be odd!
Try again.
Got it.
Signal length is 2
That's weird because the signal length must be odd!
Try again.
and so on..

I am using 2.6.34-020634-generic kernel on Ubuntu Lucid. Here's
hardware.conf just in case:
Code:
# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
#
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE="None"
REMOTE_MODULES="lirc_dev lirc_serial"
REMOTE_DRIVER="default"
REMOTE_DEVICE=""
REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF=""
REMOTE_LIRCD_ARGS=""

#Chosen IR Transmitter
TRANSMITTER="None"
TRANSMITTER_MODULES=""
TRANSMITTER_DRIVER=""
TRANSMITTER_DEVICE=""
TRANSMITTER_LIRCD_CONF=""
TRANSMITTER_LIRCD_ARGS=""

#Enable lircd
START_LIRCD="true"

#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
#START_LIRCMD="false"

#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
LOAD_MODULES="true"

# Default configuration files for your hardware if any
LIRCMD_CONF=""

#Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration
#If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application
#that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive
#frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER
#It will then populate all other variables without any user input
#If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure
#to leave this set to "false"
FORCE_NONINTERACTIVE_RECONFIGURATION="false"
START_LIRCMD=""

And here's output of mode2:
http://pastebin.com/axgwvNPg
Apparently it only recognizes Display button. Here's the thread that I've posted on ubuntuforums: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1538536
And no one can help me. Could it be that this cannot be fixed?? I am getting desperate :/

Please help!

Am also looking at this problem ATM. I have ubuntu 32bit 10.04.1 with a HP Dv6000. Everything work out of the box except the remote control. I just read this post and found about the LIRC package. I have it installed already but still the control does not work. I will check your post on ubuntu forum. Thanks for pointing it out.
