Hi,

I'm not quite sure if I understood your problem right. So you get the  
right codes with irw and have put them on remote.conf. remotes.conf as  
you wrote is not right place.
Do you start vdr with --lirc option? If you use --lirc for vdr-sxfe  
you should give --lirc to vdr (at least I don't).

cheers, Kimmo
