Multiple remotes

Is it possible to configure more than one remote for use with my n2 using meson-ir? They each use different protocols, one is rc-6 the other is nec.

How do I do it?

According me, it doesn’t work. I have 3 configurations that work in my rc_maps.cfg but it’s only the first remote config in the list that works.

Example of my rc_maps.cfg:

meson-ir * sonyRMT-VB100I
meson-ir * sonyRMT-B127P
meson-ir * remote

So in this case it’s the sonyRMT-VB100I that works. If i should put the line with remote (NEC remote) the first, that one will work.

The behaviour you describe regarding only recognizing the first remote in the rc_maps.cfg list I can confirm.However there is a way round this which involves using the script to append additional remotes to your table.

Its described here:

The only thing I would add is that you should setup your primary remote as normal using rc_maps.cfg, and then append to it using the This means using the -w key rather than the -c. Kill and killall are not the correct commands, use

systemctl start & systemctl stop

This is what my looks like:

systemctl stop eventlircd

ir-keytable -p NEC,RC-5,RC-6,JVC,SONY -w /storage/.config/rc_keymaps/SAMSUNG_REMOTE

systemctl start eventlircd

The effect is to add my keymap SAMSUNG_REMOTE to the existing VIM2 remote.
