[vdr] Remote plugin breakage with 2.6.15-rc1+ kernel

As of 2.6.15-rc1 (actually the change was originally made in 2.6.14-git8), there
is no more /dev/input/event0 node.  The nodes now start at event1 and up.  This
breaks the autodetect feature in the remote plugin for VDR.  I was able to
kludge a fix by hacking the default to the event I am currently using, but a
real fix should be made instead.

This is *hacked* fix for a remote that is using event3.  This only a kludge.
