How to set it up

LinuxMCE's infrared remote control module is based on LIRC. See http://lirc.org/ for details. LIRC includes an 'IR Record' utility to build a configuration file for a new remote control. Once you do that, then in Pluto Admin choose 'Advanced', 'Device Templates'. Choose the manufacturer, for the Category choose Peripherals, Remote Controls, LIRC Remote controls. Type in the model of the remote and click 'add'. Then edit the device, add a device data "Configuration" and copy the LIRC configuration file into it.

The Programming Guide in Control Pluto using an Infrared remote explains how it all works, and also how to use it.
