New features in upcoming yaVDR 0.3: Gyration and Inputlircd

Inspired by a Howto of VDR Portal user "grmpl" has posted in yavdr subforum at http://www.vdr-portal.de/board/thread.php?threadid=99789 (Wow, what a post for someone who has just registered!), I thought it makes sense to write something on how to use inputlircd and the reason why we support it as an additional option.



Lircd is great on providing support for usual remote controls. In case of the device is an input device inputlircd is by far the better option. It takes the input events and translates them to lircd events. This makes it very easy, since no key needs to be defined explicitly, those if started with the right options (http://www.digipedia.pl/man/doc/view/inputlircd.8/) the keys will be directly available at the lircd socket.

XBMC amd64 incomplete on Launchpad!? How come?

It happens from time to time - for example today: amd64 users are confused when they get an error message on installing the latest amd64 packages of XBMC-PVR-Testing from the hepi/yaVDR PPA via apt:

xbmc-data: Depends: xbmc-bin (< pvr-testing-32~hepi-lucid29507.1~) but pvr-testing-33~hepi-lucid29722 is to be installed

The reason for this is that Launchpad has finished building the amd64 packages before the i386 packages were built. How can that be a problem? Some of the packages that XBMC consists of, are marked as platform independent. This means, they only have to be built once and can be used on both platforms, be it i386 or amd64. Launchpad builds those packages marked as platform independent during the i386 build and ignores them during the amd64 build.
