Please CC the mailing list when it's related to basic kernel issues. 
(I've re-added them).

cx88-input.c contains all of the code to handle IR for the cx88 cards. 
If you don't see a case statement for your card then nobody has 
implemented IR. Look for similar winfast cards and see how they 
implement their IR,

CX88_BOARD_WINFAST_DTV2000H:

or

case CX88_BOARD_WINFAST2000XP_EXPERT:
case CX88_BOARD_WINFAST_DTV1000:

Add your baord definition in one of these points and see of you can 
encourage some IR activity.

Regards,

Steve
