[Bug 421276] Re: USB remote stops working


Glenn, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  USB remote stops working

Status in Mythbuntu, Ubuntu derivative focused upon MythTV:
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “lirc” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In Mythbuntu 8.04 Microsoft Media Center USB Remote (new version)
  works with no problem. Doing a clean install of Mythbuntu 9.04 results
  in the remote only working for a very short period of time (less than
  1 minute). Others have reported this with other remotes.

  Restarting LIRC with "/etc/init.d/LIRC restart" fails to restore
  operation. Running IRW in this state results in no detected button
  presses (though the LED on the front of the receiver lights up with
  each button press). A reboot is necessary to restore operation, though
  a power down and restart is the most successful at restoring

  I will start searching my logs to get some kind of data, but please
  feel free to let me know if there are any specific things you'd like
  me to try.
