We don't have this CIR remote control listed in our Tested Peripherals list nor Customer-Reported Peripherals for Intel® NUCs Intel® NUC Boards and Kits — Tested Peripherals or Intel® NUC Boards and Kits — Customer-Reported Peripherals
Hi Ricardog, thanks for your prompt reply. I understand that it is not on the list, i only ask because i have seen posts here of people getting it to work under OpenElec, on this very forum as wellRe: NUC DN2820FYKH power on by xbox one remote and using LIRC here [How-To] The NEW XBOX One Media Remote On Openelec.
though i have found no way of reproducing this outcome in Windows. Any other help is appreciated, though thank you for taking the time to respond.
In this case the IR (infrared) controller in the Intel® NUC is the same (You can test a Driver update) Download Infrared: Nuvoton* Consumer Infrared (CIR) operator for Intel® NUC but the OS (Operating System) Openelect maybe has more compatible products, You can check with Microsoft if there is any advice how to pair both using Windows® 8.1.
I am not familiar with any of the software you mention (Kodi, EventGhost, WinLIRC, Intelliremote). And don't confuse the BIOS settings (which have to do with power on from various low power states such as off) with built-in support in Windows 7/8.x Media Center (after installing the Novoton driver). For built-in support to work with an Xbox media remote (regardless of Intel/NUC), the most common thing is that you need to change a registry entry from something like 1 (which is for the regular Microsoft remote) to something like an 8 (which is the Xbox code) or 0 (which means universal any of the settings 1-8). Then reboot. Maybe that other software you mention also needs a registry change like that.
Are you encountering this withe the same model of NUC?
Also, I would like you to take into consideration that this is a remote controller made by Microsoft, and the OS used is not from that vendor, this may be affecting the performance of the device.
Have you tried with different remotes or different OS?
Does the controller has requirements to work properly?
My NUC is a DN2820FYKH which has a ITE8713 IR transceiver (not a NTN0530). I intially wanted to run Windows 8.1 but found the latest version of OpenElec to be well support out-of-the-box. Unfortunately I've run into trouble with my IR transceiver no longer picking up any events (looking at irw, evtest or ir-keytable -t).
I've been running the ite-cir driver and not the nuvoton-cir. The latter, when loaded, sees the following output from ir-keytable:
Couldn't find any node at /sys/class/rc/rc*.
As opposed to using the ite-cir driver:
Found /sys/class/rc/rc0/ (/dev/input/event6) with:
Driver ite-cir, table rc-rc6-mce
Supported protocols: NEC RC-5 RC-6 JVC SONY SANYO LIRC RC-5-SZ SHARP XMP other
Enabled protocols: NEC RC-6
Name: ITE8713 CIR transceiver
bus: 25, vendor/product: 1283:0000, version: 0x0000
Repeat delay = 1000 ms, repeat period = 125 ms
I think I had a problem with lircd stealing IR events. I'd eventually found out that both my Xbox One media remote and another TV remote I was testing with simply were not creating IR events (mobile phone camera shows they do emit IR signals, but I have no idea where they go, and I can't pick them up on any protocol including lirc custom mapping).
Never could resolve the inability to power on from s3,s4,s5 via IR. I'm just going to leave the thing running indefinitely.
