Does anyone have irTrans working in linux for Emby Theater? I have a living room htpc running emby server in a Zalman HD160 case that has IrTrans receiver remote built into it. IrTrans with the MCE remote has worked well for me in Windows 7 Media Center and Emby Media Center Classic, but it is time to retire Win7 MCE. IrTrans and the remote does work for Emby Theater for Windows, but I'm trying to avoid Win 10 bloat and its random rebooting for forced upgrades. So I'd like to shift to a Ubuntu htpc using Emby Theater to replace MCE in the living room, then possibly Docker after I get things debugged. Biggest stumbling block so far has been getting irTrans and the MCE remote to work in Emby Theater for linux. I downloaded the linux IrTrans drivers and installed them. Irtrans' irserver works in test mode, recognizing the MCE remote button presses. I then installed it as a service and made sure it starts. I configured a apps.cfg [*] section to translate buttons to keypress for emby-theater, as I had done in windows and as suggested elsewhere here. However, it does not work; no keypresses seem to be forwarded to the emby-server process [of which there are many]. File permissions on apps.cfg are set to a+r, so that shouldn't be the issue. Any chance anyone can help solve this Ubuntu/irTrans/remote issue?
