If you have a different X10 USB remote you have to set up a propper /conf/lircd.conf with remote codes.
Please have a look at the LIRC website for information how to configure LIRC.

Remote keys to WDTV actions is mapped in /conf/lircrc.

Hi recliq, nice work on LIRC + the kernel module. I actually have it working with an XBOX DVD IR receiver and remote (the ati kernel module has support for this, I only had to reconfigure lircd.conf with the remote codes).

The only problem I have been having is the modules are not automatically loaded on boot. I have to manually go into the /apps/lirc_x10/lib/modules/2.6.22.19-19-4/ directory and insmod the modules. Is there a way for me to get this to happen automatically? It is kind of a pain to insmod the kernel modules manually each time I reboot the wdtv.

thanks!

A bug was recently fixed related to app.bin kernel modules handling.

You should create an S99user-script file in /conf, and put your insmod there to work around it.

Editing the S99user-script file and adding the insmod commands worked perfectly. Will by chance the app.bin kernel module handling bug fix be released in the next version of WDLXTV?

Fix is already on SVN.
