hello david

I have one of these cards also but I have no good news for you

I am replying just to confirm that I too saw no activity in the register
logs in XP when pressing remote key presses. Nor, from what I can see
will any additions to the saa7134 code as is, aide you in reaching
remote control nirvana.

It looks as if all remotes on the saa7134 linux driver thus far are
via an interrupt and that no such interrupt is occuring when you press a key
on the remote for that board. This may require more absolute confirmation
as I didn't spend a great deal of time looking.

I took a photo but didn't identify all the ICs on the board and write
them down, it may be worthwhie doing so and also tracing from where
the IR detector comes into the card and where it actually ends up.

If you are determined then you could explore the above but there is
still no guarantee of any eventual success of course as just knowing about
it more is only the first step in actually getting it to work.


Hello darron,

Thanks for the reply. I've established the cards IR port is not GPIO but
I2C. Similar to the hvr-1110 card. The I2C readout gives me:-
