Description Jason Costomiris 2008-08-07 13:57:10 UTC
Hello all,

The above referenced URL:

includes an additional 3 lines of code to be added to lirc_mceusb2.c to add support for the Pinnacle USB ir receiver:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 2304:0225 Pinnacle Systems, Inc. [hex]

If a patch could be rolled into a mainline ebuild, I'm sure lots of others would be grateful, and I could roll off of my home spun ebuild. :)

has anyone submitted upstream?
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2012-04-29 12:49:25 UTC
Is this still needed with 0.9.0? If yes, you should report this to upstream also
Comment 3 Ian Stakenvicius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-07-17 18:50:41 UTC
All the MCEUSB stuff is in-kernel as of 0.9.0 , so there's nothing in lirc to patch anymore.

# grep 2304 /usr/src/linux/drivers/media/rc/mceusb.c 
#define VENDOR_PINNACLE         0x2304

...looks like it's in the kernel.
