I'm also a "noob using lirc on Fedora 17".
I have a KWorld BT878 TVTuner. With tvtime I can see most of the tv channels.
In Windows I configured its remote to work with many other programs.
In Fedora I installed lirc. First problem is that "Infrared Remote Control" doesn't start and sometimes is crashing.
I thought of reporting the bug but it was already reported (and it's not fixed yet).
Anyway I followed the steps from that link: http://mandrivausers.org/index.php?/...ndriva-fedora/
The problem is that the remote is part of the tvtuner, not a separate device. So that guide won't work 100%.
For example when I type "cat /proc/bus/input/devices" in a terminal, I can't see the remote listed.
What can I do to make it work...?
Thank you in advance.
