How to install asrock 330HT remote

Quick howto on installing 330HT remote in Ubuntu 10.10

Open an terminal

First we’ll need lirc:

sudo apt-get install lirc

Select “None” for both “remote control configuration” and “IR transmitter”

And then install lirc-modules-source:

sudo apt-get install lirc-modules-source

Now for Nuvoton 677 .deb’s

wget "http://europe.asrock.com/downloadsite/drivers/Nettop/Ubuntu/IR(10.10)2.6.35-22.zip"

Unzip this:

unzip IR\(10.10\)2.6.35-22.zip

Install the deb inside the unzipped catalog:

sudo dpkg -i lirc-nct677x-1.1.0-ubuntu10.10-kernel2.6.35.deb

Choose “Nuvoton Transceivers/Remotes” and “None” in the IR transmitter dialog.

To try if this installed correctly, you can run irw and press buttons:

irw

You should see something like this


user@compy:~$ irw
000000037ff07bdd 00 OK mceusb
000000037ff07bdd 01 OK mceusb
000000037ff07bdd 02 OK mceusb
000000037ff07bf3 00 Power mceusb
000000037ff07bf3 01 Power mceusb
000000037ff07bf3 02 Power mceusb

The remote should now be ready to be used with e.g. XBMC
