Yes, IR receiver is the black thing glued on USB bracket. Don't know where it's connected, I will have a look when go back home.

Thanks for the step by step ;)

What about if I created MatrixTV package with multiboot enabled? So no need to manually put new u-boot to eMMC? Just creating SD card for openelec based on image.

[quote="mikebzh44"]So I MUST write u-boot to eMMC with Peter's instructions but in this [url=http://www.tbsdtv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=155&t=8859&start=120#p32122]thread[/url], u-boot-matrix.imx is written on SD card, not on eMMC.

See here: [url]http://www.tbsdtv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=155&t=8859&start=130#p32126[/url]

[quote]If someone can summerize all operations, step by step, it would be great :
1 - Install MatrixTV 1.0.1.0
2 - Overwrite u-boot to eMMC (How ? From which archive ? ...)
3 - Install OE on SD cart (How ? From which tuto ? ...)
4 - Need to overwrite some file on SD card (Which ? Where source and target files are located ? ...)

Thanks.


I want to document my last step - creating the bootable OE on eMMC and then pull the three stages together into one new post/thread. I just have a slight problem that one of my TBS2910 PSUs has failed, so I need to work around the family using OE downstairs.

I've tried an off-the-shelf smpsu but that seems to have problems driving the hdmi interface correctly - the TBS2910 must be quite sensitive to the power. I've replaced the main electrolytic cap in the original psu and that has brought it back to life ... but the voltage drops when put on load .. so there's still another failed component ... still investigating.

[quote="vpeter"]mikebzh44, for your IR trouble you can try this[code]curl -o /storage/.config/lircd.conf https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8224157/public/matrix/tbsnec32.conf[/code]and then reboot the box.

But I'm wondering which IR receiver do you use? The one on matrix system or something else?


Sorry, remote still KO :(

I don't know if it's helpfull but I have listed devices presents under OpenELEC Gotham :

[code]
MatrixELEC:~/.config # for i in /sys/class/input/input* ; do echo -n "$(basename "$i"): "; cat "$i/name"; done
input0: Rx504B Ver:1.00
input1: Rx504B Ver:1.00
input2: gpio_ir_recv
input3: MCE IR Keyboard/Mouse (gpio-rc-recv)
[/code]

I think I need to use input3

When I look into XBMC running instance, I have :

[code]
MatrixELEC:~/.config # ps -aef |grep xbmc
954 root 1:20 /usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin --standalone -fs --lircdev /run/lirc/lircd --debug
1068 root 0:00 grep xbmc
[/code]

But /run/lirc/lircd does not exist :

[code]
MatrixELEC:~/.config # cat /run/lirc/lircd
cat: can't open '/run/lirc/lircd': No such device or address
[/code]

Will reflash MatrixTV 1.0.1.0 to try dual boot and to see how lirc is defined.

mikebzh44, still don't know which IR receiver you use and how is connected? Seems you are using some USB based on? In this case can you run [code]lsusb -v[/code] command.

Yes, I have an USB dongle for my keyboard with track ball.

After removing this dongle :

[code]
MatrixELEC:~ # for i in /sys/class/input/input* ; do echo -n "$(basename "$i"): "; cat "$i/name"; done
input2: gpio_ir_recv
input3: MCE IR Keyboard/Mouse (gpio-rc-recv)
[/code]

lsusb -v : http://pastebin.com/pB5p8gvC

After plug in USB dongle :

[code]
MatrixELEC:~ # for i in /sys/class/input/input* ; do echo -n "$(basename "$i"): "; cat "$i/name"; done
input2: gpio_ir_recv
input3: MCE IR Keyboard/Mouse (gpio-rc-recv)
input5: Rx504B Ver:1.00
input6: Rx504B Ver:1.00
[/code]

After flashing MatrixTV 1.0.1.0

When setting LIRC to use lirc0 rc-core loopback dev and mceremote.conf from Matrix setting menu :

Remote is KO

[code]
[root@matrixtv ~]# for i in /sys/class/input/input* ; do echo -n "$(basename "$i"): "; cat "$i/name"; done
input0: gpio-keys
input1: rc-core loopback device
input2: Rx504B Ver:1.00
input3: Rx504B Ver:1.00
[/code]

But now, even after reenter Matrix settings and set LIRC to lirc1 lirc-matrix :

[url=http://imgur.com/7Ur9EYR][img]http://i.imgur.com/7Ur9EYRl.jpg[/img][/url]

Remote is still KO and lirc device is wrong :

[code]
[root@matrixtv ~]# for i in /sys/class/input/input* ; do echo -n "$(basename "$i"): "; cat "$i/name"; done
input0: gpio-keys
input1: rc-core loopback device
input2: Rx504B Ver:1.00
input3: Rx504B Ver:1.00
[/code]

Will reflash MatrixTV 1.0.1.0 :S

So I prepared few files which makes MatrixTV multiboot capable. Two files are replaced (ucl2.xml, u-boot-mx6q-sabresd.bin) and two files are extra (u-boot-matrix.imx, uEnv.txt). Files from archive TBS-MatrixTV-V1.0.1.0-multiboot.zip must be copied and overwrite to folder "OS Firmware" in original MatrixTV files from TBS-MatrixTV-V1.0.1.0.zip.

When this is flashed to eMMC new multiboot u-boot is already there and also uEnv.txt file. MatrixTV boots as before. But now we can also boot anything from SD card. Like OpenELEC ;)
Then only SD card for OpenELEC must be made.

mikebzh44, can you blacklist internal gpio IR receiver and reboot? Maybe then you will get IR working.
Also try mode2 program. And you still need to use first autostart.sh I posted.

[code]echo "blacklist gpio_ir_recv" >>/storage/.config/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf[/code]

Now, I'm still running MatrixTV 1.0.1.0, just make a fresh install, press key for entering setup when MatrixTV splash screen is displayed.
Setup MatrixTV to use lirc1 lirc_matrix but after rebooting, remote is KO and LIRC driver is not the one choosen in setup program :

[code]
[root@matrixtv ~]# ir-keytable
Found /sys/class/rc/rc0/ (/dev/input/event1) with:
Driver rc-loopback, table rc-empty
Supported protocols: NEC RC-5 RC-6 JVC SONY LIRC RC-5-SZ
Enabled protocols: LIRC
Repeat delay = 1000 ms, repeat period = 125 ms
[/code]

Is there a way to blacklist this receiver in MatrixTV (because /storage does not exist) or to force good one (lirc1) ?

Use standard location /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf. And module name is lirc_matrix (I think).
