While I am indeed strongly in favor of integrating dib0700 with ir_keymaps.c so it is consistent with the other drivers, I have been tied up in another project and haven't had any cycles to do the work required. By all means, if you want to propose a patch, I would be happy to offer feedback/comments.Hi Devin, yes, it was my intention to offer some help.My hope was to find some similarities that I could use for dibcom. But everything looks different. And they deal with GPIO. So it looks much more complicated than just simply adding some keys to a table. ;-)Do you have an idea which of the modules listed above is closest to the dibcom module? Can you (easily) create a frame/template that I can use for a start and I add details and does the testing?Is the existing ir_keymaps approach already able to handle the case that I need to set dvb_usb_dib0700_ir_proto=0 (=> no NEC protocol) for my Elgato?
If you are going to ir_keymap or any other superior solution (which I'm for), please don't consider the dib0700-driver only, but think about the whole dvb-usb-framework... Only the driver specific part can be found in the drivers. The input-stuff is located in dvb-usb-remote.c
Loading the ir-tables from userspace would be the preferred solution, like that any IR-receiver on any device could handle any remote-control (requiring a generic IR-decoder in the device's firmware) without changing the kernel-module-driver...
Is lirc already in-kernel now? Can the event-interface handle raw keys (so that a user-space thing could translate them to their real meaning?)
