    Very enlightning, thanks.

    But is this info ment for Mr. Holland or for users with that problem ?
    In case of the latter, please explain how to "set the kext to a new USB HID device".

    I'd imagine he's just telling you to use a different USB device if the first one doesn't work (i.e.: use mouse 2 if mouse 1 doesn't work). Though, I'm using the same ven/dev ID as the mouse that is also configured as FrontRowPass (IIRC).

    its for everyone

    follow the readme.txt included in the irkeyboardemu folder to set an HID device to the kext.

    I haven't read the readme.txt, yet.

    I'm sorry for being to hasty, then I should have known before posting.

    do you think this could be adapted somehow to allow events from third-party IR dongles to be passed as apple IR events?

    specifically, i have a Manta TR1 usb dongle (from twistedmelon.com) and an apple remote. i guess i could set up their sw to emulate keypresses, but i'd rather just get the thing to act like the apple IR receiver.

    i might have a look around your src and see if i can figure something out thanks for posting it!


    EDIT: Ok, i've just read your readme. the bit about the sysctl variable is very interesting maybe i can hack something together...
    Check out iRed. You could easily whip together a profile for it with applescripts for each button that set the applicable sysctl variable with a shell script. Hell you could even use it with an Apple Remote ($29 at the apple store, i think), and be able to use an apple remote on any computer you like...

    Am i the only one having problems getting htis to work? It is succesfully loading the kext, and kbcontroller is working. Pushing up and down arrow on my keyboard changes the volume, and i can launch aTV-Frontrow by pushing spacebar, but when aTV-running-as-Frontrow actually launches, i still have no control. It seems the OS is getting the apple remote events, but not aTV.

    Am i the only one with these problems (im trying to figure out if its a configuration/compatability problem).

    FYI, I am running 10.4.8 SSE2 with aTV finder renamed as Front Row.app using the basic hacks + BRWindowRender hack.

    Its just so odd, because the kext is definatly working, but its still not controlling atv-frontrow

    cooool!! works on my hackint0sh, except the KeyboardReader is too sensitive to control.. (one key stroke makes 2 or 4 kern.sendIR at a same time.)

    %p.s) my hackint0sh has a built-in remote control receiver, so i made my mind to use it instead of using keyboard(KeyboardReader) to control Front Row 2.0 (from AppleTV):

    my remote control sends IR code => a dedicate ir receiver driver gets it and foward it to iRed => iRed translate it into 'sysctl -w kern.sendIR=x' => finally bholland's IRKeyboardEmu emulates the code as if it's from an Apple Remote.

    basically, it takes two usb devices, one for 3rd party ir receiver and another for IRKeyboardEmu. Futhermore, the usb device for IRKeyboardEmu is no longer function(current limitation). i think it will be better to use a 3rd party ir receiver directly to control FR(aTV) by faking it as an apple's built-in ir receiver somehow(redesigning IRKeyboardEmu extension or so).. any ideas?
