SubjectUSB remote control missing keycodes
From
Date
Hello all.

I have a remote control device, with an IR transciever that plugs into a
USB port and registers as an input device.

All the buttons on the remote work fine except for the back , text , and
three grey buttons at the top.

Here is the relevant /proc/bus/input/devices entry :


I: Bus=0003 Vendor=18b1 Product=0037 Version=0100
N: Name="ELMAK.pl irMAKbd pl"
P: Phys=usb-0000:00:03.1-2/input0
S: Sysfs=/class/input/input4
H: Handlers=kbd mouse1 event4 ts1
B: EV=12000f
B: KEY=f 42c53b7 bf0d4400 0 0 70001 10004 3c007 ff8763fa c140dfff
febeffdf ffefffff ffffffff fffffffe
B: REL=103
B: ABS=7ff01 0
B: LED=1f
I did a little investigation using evbug and inputlircd and it seems
that these buttons generate codes that get dropped somewhere in the
input layer. They work fine on windows.

I used a modified inputlircd to get all the raw keycodes using irw :

Here's what I get for the down key :

6c 0 KEY_DOWN event4
0 0 KEY_RESERVED event4
29 0 KEY_GRAVE event4
0 0 KEY_RESERVED event4
6c 0 KEY_DOWN event4
0 0 KEY_RESERVED event4

and volume+

73 0 KEY_VOLUMEUP event4
0 0 KEY_RESERVED event4
29 0 KEY_GRAVE event4
0 0 KEY_RESERVED event4
73 0 KEY_VOLUMEUP event4
0 0 KEY_RESERVED event4

As compared to the non-functional keys like back :

29 0 KEY_GRAVE event4
0 0 KEY_RESERVED event4

As you can see it is sending only the reserved and GRAVE codes, and no
special codes.

Next point of debugging is inside the kernel, using the evbug module :

sudo modprobe evbug

pressed the Volume+ key

look in dmesg :

pressed the Back button the extra lines are :

[ 2856.041526] evbug.c: Event. Dev: usb-0000:00:03.1-2/input0, Type: 3, Code: 41, Value: 35
[ 2856.041537] evbug.c: Event. Dev: usb-0000:00:03.1-2/input0, Type: 0, Code: 0, Value: 0

I just need a pointer to where to start looking at the problem.

Here's the website for the remote

Thanks in advance.
