Hi there,

currently I am trying to set up an EPIA-based MythTV box with two 
Terratec Cinergy 1400-T cards. The basics are sorta-kinda working 
already, but fine-tuning the system really takes ages... Hence any 
helpful reply to the following two questions about the Cinergy's remote 
control would be appreciated:

1) As far as I understand, some part of the cx2388x kernel module (I am 
using a custom monolithic 2.6.14 kernel) directly converts remote 
control signals to some kind of keypress events (at least when pressing 
any of the number or direction keys on the remote, a bash console reacts 
accordingly). This conversion is , I understand, performed via the 
/dev/input/event interface (at least I get some cryptic output from "cat 
/dev/input/event1" on every remote key press). I wonder if it is somehow 
possible to forward any of this data to lircd so that arbitrary commands 
may be issued on remote key hits. Any idea how to achieve this?

2) Althoug the Myth box alone will significantly reduce the number of 
required remote controls in the living room (provided I ever will be 
able to finish the installation...), I'd love to get along with just one 
multi-purpose remote. So does anyone know if (and if so: how) it might 
be possible to use the Cinergy's IR reciever with a different remote 
control?

Thanx in advance for any help --

     Torsten
