You do not need journalctl, because your system is no systemd-system obviously.
On my system there is no syslog or other logfile in directory /var/log :)
Your line "[FAIL] Starting remote control..." means that LIRC has any problem.
Please try to find any other entries in any logfiles that may be related with
This failed start should be visible in syslog...
You've right. But curiously, I didnt find error :

On my system the package from TBS installs in different directories than the
original modules are.
This way I had a mixture of original modules and modules from TBS. After deleting the
original "media" subdirs and reinstalling TBS stuff all was ok. But if it
become necessary to restore the originals you need a backup...
Maybe your system has a different directory structure?
Yes, I think so. I see 2 path :
(I am afraid that if I restore media from backup it erase news modules from
TBS).Theses points (path and need/or don't need to restore backup) are not very
clear for me.
It is not important in which directory structure the modules are installed.
But it is important, that you have no mixture of modules, that are build from
or that are incompatible in any other way. The package from TBS install its own
version of v4l (Video4Linux)
and your system should use only these modules, not the originals or both of
Normally you will not need backups, but to have it is better :)
Maybe it is a good idea to reinstall your Debian system to be sure, that all
modules are clean.
Than create a backup of the entire modules tree (/lib/modules/*) and install
TBS stuff without deleting any directories.
After that you are able to compare the mixed modules to the backup (diff -Nqr
/lib/modules /your.backup) and find out,
what you should delete before installing TBS.
I can't check this because "/etc/sysconfig" doesn't exist in my Debian 7.7.0.
Do you know the path for Debian ?
vdr:~ # grep '^[A-Z]' /etc/sysconfig/lirc LIRCD_DEV_PERMISSIONS="660"
vdr:~ # find /etc -name 'lirc*'
Try this on your system...
Unfortunately I didn't find this file :-(

Your /etc/lirc/hardware.conf could be somewhat that /etc/sysconfig/lirc is on
Yes, that's why I did'nt find /etc/sysconfig.
At this time, I think **the point** is to clarify is the configuration file :
path, name and content.
In case I can't find/fix this, do you think it could be interesting to try with
a fresh install of Debian Jessie **8.4.0** which kernel 3.16 ?
Debian and OpenSUSE are different. Logging is different, configuration is
different, ... but both are linux :)
Do you have an old system with running DVB and LIRC? If so, try to find the
I do not know Debian and which version is stable or not.
But why not - "latest is greatest" :)
