I recently built myself a new HTPC. It’s controlled with a Medion X10 remote control using LIRC. For some reason, LIRC doesn’t realize when the USB dongle for my remote control is reconnected (unplug USB, plug it back in). This blog posts demonstrates how to easily fix this using a udev rule. I originally posted this on the XBMC forum.
I recently built myself a new and shiny HTPC for my living room, and because it took lots of time researching the right components, I’d like to share my experiences. I published this post first on the XBMC forum a couple of days ago. Feel free to comment either here or there. Lots of pictures in the post!
