LIRC Remote Presses Are All Converted To Upper Case Characters

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: unknown
Severity: medium Keywords: lirc
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I am using LIRC with MythTV bound as a program.

When a lower case button on the remote is pressed MythTV converts the character to the upper case version instead.

When using irw the remote is configured correctly (lower case characters buttons are recognised) so it seems to point to MythTV doing the conversion for some reason.

This means it is not possible to use the built in MythTV functionality (Change Recording Title) to rename programmes/sub titles as lowercase characters are not possible.

For example, my lircrc file contains the following but MythTV outputs a W instead of a w.

  prog = MythTV
  button = KP_W_LOWERCASE
  repeat = 0
  config = w
