I am in the process of installing mythtv and this are going really well but automating the infra red portion is giving me some problems. When I run all the steps individually the infrared works and controls mythtv, but when I try to have the computer auto login to the mythtv user and start up mythtv automatically then the ir device does not work.
These are the commands that work when I type the commands manually:
or /sbin/service lircd start
... just to test that it works, and it does....
Again I repeat this works.
But...when I add the lines
into a script file in my Autostart directory then the lircd device does not work. I believe the lirc device is starting automatically on boot. I have the /etc/lrcd.conf file in place and I have the .lircrc file in the /home/mythtv directory.
Any ideas? And how should I ensure that each step is successfully happening?
Thanks in advance.
If this is a double post or if there are typos I apologize as I am using my tv as the monitor and I am typing blind.
