Re: Which is a good hdmi extender with xbmc

For illustration the numbers 1-9 work additional than the hash and star buttons do not, the volume and channel switch are not recognized utilizing irw to acquire output, the center green switch is not recognized, as well as a small number of others. So, my queri is, is there an additional driver for the dongle to facilitate I might try it. Messing around through my keymap would not do no mater what, I imagine, at the same time as lirc is not even recognizing the button codes.
