Hi Nick

I have the following setup
- Compro DVB-T300
- Gentoo 2.6.11
- pIII 500
- vdr 1.3.11

I have loaded the latest drivers from CSV and included your patches and have 
some results that I don't understant, perhpas you can explain?

I notice from dmesg that loading the saa7134 drivers now registers an input 
device for IR.  As soon as I do this and use the remote control I get output 
to my console as if it were a keyboard.  I do not have LIRC running at this 

Is this what you would expect?

Is there any way I can route the IR input to an input device and use LIRC 
with vdr?

Do I even need LIRC since the remote control is obviously working and 
triggering some event in Linux?

Thanks in advance
