MythTV Wiki on MCE Gyration Remotes


Definately worth a look and some nice work over there,


Here is a bit of what you'll see there....a wiki, that's what we need.


http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php...ed_MCE_Remotes

"Dell M2010 Media Center Remote
A Dell-branded Gyration remote with small LCD that can be had with the Dell M2010 system. The remote is p/n WJ151 or RY496. The USB portion is contained on a custom PCB (p/n RH515) which has a non-standard USB pinout. RH515 is no longer available, and instead, a package containing both the remote and a real USB dongle with standard USB pinout can reportedly be ordered via Dell p/n CX071.

The unit uses the Cypress CYWUSB6934-48LFXC for RF communications, which is NOT compliant with wireless USB. The microcontroller and USB interface is handled by a CY7C63743-QXC "enCoRe USB" device. "

Remotes

My MCE remote that came with my PVR-USB2 doesn't seem to be programmable (to have the volume control the television). So I bought the ultra cool M2010 remote off ebay, and ordered the receiver from Dell, per the AVS forum thread (it contains a discrete power supply and two chips: CYWUSB6934-48LFXC [wireless USB tx (and rx?)] and the CY7C63743-QXC [enCoRe USB something or other].

Be sure to keep in mind Bruce Perens instructions.

LINK:
http://perens.com/works/software/gyration.html

INSTRUCTIONS:

Using the Gyration Media Center Remote with Linux
The good news is that it should work out of the box, if your system is properly configured. When my system was improperly configured, the keyboard worked properly but the mouse had the horizontal axis appearing as vertical, no horizontal movement, and the buttons caused odd cursor movements.
Make sure the usbmouse and usbkbd modules are not loaded. These drivers are obsolete, and should not be used. Instead, use usbhid. That driver understands HID (human interface device) descriptor data sent by the mouse and configures itself properly

Configure X to use /dev/input/mice as its input device, and set the protocol to "ImPS/2". Then, you should be able to use the wired keyboard and mouse and the Gyration ones together.

Using All Of Those Buttons
Once you've got the basic mouse functions running, it's time to make the buttons work. Install xbindkeys, xbindkeys-config, and xvkbd. On Debian, you can just use apt-get and the packages have the same names as the programs. I haven't tested Red Hat.

Run xbindkeys-config. Press the New and Get Key buttons, then press one of the function buttons on the Gyration mouse or keyboard. The event parameters will be filled in for you, and then you can fill in a command that will be run when you press that button. When you've made commands for all of the buttons, use the Save command to save the file to .xbindkeysrc in your home directory. Then run xbindkeys. This will capture button presses and run the commands in your .xbindkeysrc file.

One useful command is xvkbd -xsendevent -text text-string
This simulates typing any key combination on the keyboard. Read its manual page for details.

If you generate an interesting configuration, send it to bruce at perens.com, I'll put it here for others to download.

END POST.



---------------------------------------------------------------------




# cat /proc/bus/input/devices

and

# cat /proc/bus/usb/devicesIf I have trouble:


There is a Linux MCE wiki that I've never seen before, which makes mention of the
Fiire-chief and event codes, among other things. LMCE also has a thread on their mailing list, as well and on their forums.
KnoppMyth has a mention of something similar.
There is a thread at Ubuntu forums as well. And another.
And a Ubuntu bug as well
try a google search
or linux usb kernal search or patch, continued here. More patch here.

This may not be easy to resolve
Collect more data. Or hack.

As always, it's been discussed on /., including a post by Bruce hisself.
Or maybe I should just buy the Logitech Harmony remote that everyone raves about. Nawww... that would be cheating.

One thing I noticed is that the remote is recognized as a keyboard rather than a remote. A thread on the linuxmce forum mentions getting Linux to recognize it as a remote by keying on its USB UUID, which allowed someone to use UIRT by way of adding a line in /etc/something/rules.d. Seems like part of the problem might be some keycodes are > 255? Xmodmap is the default way of supporting stuff via the HID driver that is enabled by default. A hack into LIRC might provide access to more keys. The guy that figured out the rules.d aspect is named Adam Pierce. LIRC appears to be the much preferred way because it works across lots of different applications.

I wonder about the other direction. The remote has an LCD screen. Interesting - there is a USB LCD display that you can buy which we might be able to base some of this on. It uses the standard libusb, with a small adder: usblcd. linuxusblcd and lcdproc also exist. There is even Mythlcdserver, which uses lcdproc. Might use a usb bus tracker within windows to see it (the driver) in operation.

Different thread on the same topic: I also have a desire to be able to remotely control a frontend from a remote computer (that is obviously not the front end). Especially mythmusic (or whatever might replace it). So volume control, next song and previous song are the most important. Being able to retrieve the playlist would be a big bonus, although I'd probably be happy with Previous song/artist + current song/artist (and hopefully + next song/artist). There are some people that appear to have done something similar: Myth Web Virtual Remote, iphone remote control, mythetomer, mythRemote, and Remote Remote (for Apple). The mythtv telnet socket wiki page has links to some of these as well. Or maybe I'll just settle for vnc. tkmythremote is new, as is mymote (which is much more than just a simple remote - perhaps what I want for the LCD display??).

This is not a big deal but a bit of annoying behavior of the remote (or the T.V?):

When I want to turn the TV on/off, it takes at least 3 times to press the power button, before it would turn on/off. anybody experienced the same problem or have a solution for it...

Snake killer,

Is this an IR problem that has recently developed or has it always been so.

If it is the latter, the Westinghouse panels I use has a remote that must be aimed at the ceiling, wiggled, and then, ocassionaly, registeres a button push push. It is THE only way the panel will register any IR signal. It was almost if the engineers were in the back room with a bottle of vodka and a box of parts. The forum on the Westinghouse LVM-47W1 and the TX line are full of remote trouble reports. The panels are 47" of pure love, the TX line and the LVM-47w1 remotes are worthless. The worst I have ever encountered. I no longer use this remote for IR access.

A few things to consider if this is a new problem:

1) Batteries ( I have found this is usually the issue in signal strength)

** ---->> (Thanks www.Htguys.com & a response from a podcast listener - HDTV and Home Theater Podcast...check it out. Good Stuff.)

You can use a camera, video camera to test your IR response to button push. Aim the remote IR emitter at the video camera and you will see the emitter diode respond. A good way to test functionality of your remotes.

2) Clean IR emitters/receivers (fingerprints/etc)
3) Clear line of sight
4) The IR interface can be off, depending on the source and method of design.

Thanks Benzonate for your response. To answer your question, I actually dont remebmber if the problem was always there, or maybe I used it differently before. The orginal remote that came with the T.V. works fine.

There are couple of observation I have about the remote.

1. I usually press the "T.V. mode" button before trying to use it for T.V. because I don't want to turn off the computer. In that case it would take three times to register on/off key- (today I discovered I can just hold it for about three seconds and that works too- which I can live with).

2. Given that it is already on T.V. mode, I can just hit the on/off key as if I am using a normal remote and it works.

Thanks for the links too, I 'll check em out. It kinda freaked me out when you said Westinghouse. Did I mention what kind of T.V. I have before, or are you too good at guessing?

I wish I knew they were available when the official website says coming soon. I wouldn't have to switch remotes when using my z-5500 with this remote. Oh well, I guess I will keep coming to this forum, until someone figures out a hack for this problem also. You know, make this remote control everything from the T.V. to room's temperature to lights in the house.

Thanks for the tip, I do see one for $126.00 with Google checkout. Not bad. I spent like $90.00 on mine. I have to be careful though, some of the reviews they listed are for older version fo the remote, which doesn't light up.

How much will this(dell version) go for on ebay if I sell it with the receiver all ready to go.

Yes, I am totally in your head on this issue. I have 2 Westinghouse 47" panels (of love) which are actually manufactured by Chi Mei and placed in the LVM series...llike the two LVM-47w1 LCD panels I game er, um. I mean work on. Both exhibit the I.R. uselessness and the subsequent lack of remote funtionality...serioulsy poor design on both the I.R. emitter and receiver end.

You're not alone...it's in the Westinghouse design gene. They do, however, use brilliant, 1:1 pixel mapping - 1920 x 1080 resolution in these Chi Mei panels (see my sig below) ...so I can live with a P.O.S. remote and visit www.monoprice.com for a $30 HDMI remote switcher, coupled with VNC and a DVI switch. There's always a way.

I created that wiki entry, and the blog is mine. All thanks to you (b3nz0n8) for kicking this whole thing off. I'm just trying to collect up all the information I've found across the web.

You posting this made me realize that I'm missing the info/link to the windows driver to make the LCD portion work. I'm in the process of setting up things to reverse engineer the LCD for Linux. I've got some USB captures where I can see the text for the music (album/title/artist) being sent across - just have to figure out how to activate the thing.

Speaking of the (expensive) Gyration remote, it is available on their website now. Also available is an even more expensive combo remote + keyboard GYR4101CKUS.

Damn Benzonate, I was just joking; you are getting me too excited. But I think nobody has figured out how to mass market home automation, yet. Maybe because people cant plug it in and turn it on like everything else?

I would love to upgrade to gyration remote, if it wasn't soo ugly. Gyration probably has no industrial designers. Thats why all their products look plain and ugly. I think the Dell remote goes with my whole setup much better, even though it is a pain to switch remotes. But I will stick with it until the prices go down, or somebody (Benzonate) figures out a hack for that too, and writes a guide on how to make the gyration remote look slick (and black)

I've got some USB captures where I can see the text for the music (album/title/artist) being sent across - just have to figure out how to activate the thing.

Speaking of the (expensive) Gyration remote, it is available on their website now. Also available is an even more expensive combo remote + keyboard GYR4101CKUS.

@ Marc / mrandtx :


Great work over at the MCE Gyration Remote wiki ( http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php...ed_MCE_Remotes ).

I am gathering as much that can be found and posting links here, as well as adding to the wiki, when possible.

I emailed Ian Dixon ( http://themediacentershow.com/cs/blo...t/default.aspx ) in reference to your MCE Gyration Remote wiki and blog. He recently released a podcast - The Media Center Show #172 - CEDIA -on the release of the Gyration LCD remote. He's pulling in some great insight and providing a voice for the enthusiast. Nice work Ian. It's nice to see the enthusiast at work / play. Thanks for the wiki and the blog, I'll keep an eye on it and pass the word. Great work Marc

This morning I turned on my HTPC, and I noticed the remote (gyration) stops every 10 seconds or so. Then I see a bar on the bottom of remote's LCD, and then it says "version 1.0.0.44", then I have to press the gyration button again.

I tried taking the batteries out and then putting them back in. I hope its the batteries that are dying, but the battery icon says its full.

Any of you experienced same problem?

snake killer,

I recently did some heavy configuring on my HTPC using the M2010 and my results are similar. When the batteries weaken , which by the way life has been great so far...this thing is so easy to use, as i motioned the remote to move the mouse across the 73" screen running at 1080P i noticed it breaking up. Replaced the batter and it was fine.

When it was weakened if i moved within 4 feet it work too but not 9. So the range weakens as well. Makes sense for Wireless RF

Also, took an old usb thumbdrive case, and resealed it with the R515 in it. Mounted it in my HTPC Case (Zalman HD160XT Rev 1) and it severely limits the range. So now it hange on the back of my Cabinet wall out of sight on a pin nail and it works flawlessly.

Replace the batteries friend.

Hi folks,

For those of you that have been PM'ing me regarding the Premium Remote Kits (Remote control, wireless dongle, infrared reciever, IR blaster extender etc.)

The CX071 has returned to the original price of $150.00.

bad news and mediocre news.

Bad News:
After much delay, Dell confirmed my order and ship date last week and then canceled my order today (which is when they should have arrived).

I found that they had the wrong part number and called them to correct it.
I tried to re-order at the original price, but since my quote was older than 60 days, they said no and they doubled the price to a part that was "equivalent."

Mediocre news:
I ordered more at the more expensive price, but this will increase the cost to $75.00 with free insured shipping via USPS priority mail, anywhere in the US.
If you were buying multiples of 5, I will need to charge $11.00 more per unit than the price I gave you earlier and $12.00 for shipping all units.

If you are not interested at this price I can completely understand, please let me know if that is the case.
Dell indicates that the first 9 should be here in 4 days and the rest the following week.

I will post pictures of the items and the new part number.

Joe

nc88keyz, Thank you for the reply.

It was indeed the batteries. Funny thing is that after replacing the batteries the remote said "connected to computer" for the first time. Before it used to say " connection unsuccessful" yet still worked. I haven't used it as an stb remote yet, but it is a great product for the price.

About MicroGyro

The MG1101 MicroGyro is a low-cost, dual-axis miniature-rate gyroscope that is fully self-contained for easy integration into human input devices such as human motion tracking, computer pointers, TV remote controllers, game controllers, robotics, factory automation, antenna stabilization and auto navigation. The MG1101 includes an integrated analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and communicates via a conventional 2-wire serial interface bus allowing a user or OEM to connect the device directly to a microcontroller with no additional hardware.


About WirelessUSB

WirelessUSB, offered by both Cypress and its second-source partner, Atmel Corp. (Nasdaq:ATML), delivers the best combination of performance and cost versus competing wireless technologies. Featuring a highly integrated radio transceiver plus digital baseband on a single chip, WirelessUSB enables designers to significantly decrease development time, component count and system cost while improving operating range, power-consumption and latency. The DSSS (Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum)-based technology is robust to interference and has claimed 88 design wins to date.

The RH 1515 unit is crapping out lately. The mouse stops working all of a sudden. I have to get up from my couch, plug out the USB receiver,and then plug it back in. Then i works. After doing this a few times it gives me an error message saying that the usb device is not recognized. Am I screwed? It does work when I plug it back in 80% of the time but it is really annoying.

Or the problem could aso be in the dell utility, because that also gives me error. It just stops working.

Anybody experienced this before?

Hi folks,

My sincerest apologies for all those who contacted me regarding getting more.

Since my last posting I have had three orders go wrong.

For the first two orders, Dell canceled outright and the third ended with Dell sending me their MR268 remote kits by mistake.

After much negotiation and wasted time on the phone I will be refunded for the wrong parts, but can not get the CX071 kits at the great price I did before.

I will rarely be checking this board in the future due to other priorities (just bought a house with lots to fix, got to emphasize the work on the home around the home entertainment system), but thanks to all those who shared their knowledge with me and to all those who are making good use of these remotes.

Closing escrow during these rough economic times and moving has delayed my ability to give a timely response, sorry for the bad news.

Does anyone know how the one can scroll through web pages using the part which looks like a "D-Pad" on the remote- its the four keys surrounding the "OK" button. I see that it lets you scroll through certain web pages but not all of them. I could be on the same website and have two different web pages opened in two different tabs. and it lets me scroll one and not the other.

Anyone know if there is a way to enable scrolling in all pages?

About the RH1515 crapping out-I think it was the internal USB wires that were getting separated. I just had to make them tighter and haven't had problems since then.
