Hi all,

I'm newbi on this mailing-list...Excuse-me, I'm a French guy. I'm not 
very good at English. I hope you will understand what I write on my mail.

I've got a problem in order to use my "grey" pinnacle remote

I've tried to use the ideas from this mail 

I've successly installed my PCTV USB2 50e on my Ubuntu Dapper in order 
to use the remote control

But I've still having problem...like people who send theirs owns 
messages on 
about "...Additionally, it seems, that when I push a button of the 
remote it produces an endless (repeating) signal...."

Any idea about how to solve that?



Here is the commands I've used to install my pinnacle's pctv:

cd /usr/src
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~mrechberger/v4l-dvb
cd v4l-dvb

Open the file /usr/src/v4l-dvb/linux/drivers/media/video/em28xx/em28xx-input.c

Replace at line 259

if (buf[0]!=0x00){
                return 0;


if (buf[0]!=0xfe){
                return 0;

then i added to "/etc/modprob.d/options"

options em28xx  card=3 i2c_scan=1 i2c_debug=1 device_mode=1 ir_debug=2

and to "/etc/modules"


then i reboot my computer
