I would suggest creating a netlink device which lircd (or similar) can
read from. I haven't really looked further into it since I never really
intended on having the IR support from the DVB devices; my brewing
mythtv frontend system is both diskless and tunerless so I have a USB
MCE IR dongle instead.
