I was hoping to use the Flirc USB IR receiver as a way of adding a remote into my music server setup.
I'm currently using Daphile as the platform for my server. It supports keybindings for player functions and I've tested it with a number of usb keyboards and it recognizes them all.
Daphile recognizes the Flirc USB receiver as:
"flirc.tv flirc Keyboard [usb-0000:00:13.0-1.3/input 1] "
"flirc.tv flirc Consumer Control [usb-0000:00:13.0-1.3/input 1] "
"flirc.tv flirc System Control [usb-0000:00:13.0-1.3/input 1] "
however it won't capture key presses with any of these selected.
What's strange is I was even able to control the local UI of Daphile with Flirc and a remote with buttons mapped to arrow and enter keys....
I believe Daphile is built on Gentoo Linux.
I also tried using the Linux command line flirc_util options (enabling/disabling USB modes, etc.) but nothing seemed to change.
Any help/suggestions/other firmware or configuration recommendations would be appreciated!
