First at all, thanks you for answers (and the help!!)
I'm on an Ubuntu Linux 7.04, with 2.6.20-16-generic kernel.
The AF9005 adapter works correctly (my with Kaffeine), but i'm trying to use
the remote control unit inside the usb adapter.
After install mercurial and v4l-modules, my dmesg says:
[12178.092000] usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address
[12178.308000] usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[12178.316000] dvb-usb: found a 'Afatech DVB-T USB1.1 stick' in cold state,
will try to load a firmware

[12178.936000] dvb-usb: found a 'Afatech DVB-T USB1.1 stick' in warm state.
[12178.936000] dvb-usb: will use the device's hardware PID filter (table
[12178.940000] DVB: registering new adapter (Afatech DVB-T USB1.1 stick)
[12178.944000] DVB: registering frontend 0 (AF9005 USB DVB-T)...
[12178.944000] input: IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver as

[12178.944000] dvb-usb: Afatech DVB-T USB1.1 stick successfully initialized
I would use the remote control to convert my linux box on a complete HTPC
box with mythtv or mplayer.
Searching on luca's web, I found a new Readme.lirc and a af9005-lirc.c. I
tried build it as readme says and I got lots of make errors:
I've modified the Makefile in correct folder and added the flag
"-I/usr/src/lirc-0.8.1/", just where I've decompressed the lirc sources.
I have any questions:
1 - the dvb-usb-af9005-lirc module (if i can compile it) will be as a module
of lirc defaults?? how is it used??
2 - the remote module charged with v4l-dvb standards modules doesn't work??
Can't be used with lirc or another way??
3 - dmesg seems to recognize the IR-receiver inside of USB DVB receiver as
/class/input/input11, can be lirc configured to use it?? On README.lirc he
said he have a serial IR receiver, but can we use lirc with the IR-receiver
inside of dongle??
Thanks in advance for your help!!
Luca, thans for your driver too!! I've written an HowTo on
your driver and it have been visited about 2450 times, thank
you very much!!
