I had the Igor repo working on a Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-HD-S2 (aka HVR4000
Lite) with VDR 1.7.0 as well, until yesterday that is. The harddisk of my
VDR system died and I had to re-install everything on a new HDD. The
important configs were backupped, but I didn't backup the Igor repo.

Well, no biggie. I compiled the latest hg repo on Xubuntu 8.0.4.
Compilation and installation went without problems. DVB-S and DVB-S2 works
in VDR 1.7.0. Only I can't get the remote of the Hauppauge working any
more in combination with the vdr-remote plugin. VDR starts, but just hangs
when he wants to setup the remote:

- dmesg output:

[   40.705724] input: cx88 IR (Hauppauge WinTV-HVR400 as

- user.log output:

Jul 31 07:11:04 htpc vdr: [6610] remote control remote-event4 - learning keys

Jul 31 07:11:42 htpc vdr: [6610] new remote-event4 code: 0000000100010067
= Up

Then it hangs. No output on the screen (I use the eHD for output). If I
change the input to lircd (which is for my mce_usb2 device) with
vdr-remote, the Remote setup comes up and I can complete it.

Has something changed to the remote functionality in the Igor repo? The
pull I did from last friday, did work with the vdr-remote plugin and my

I can agree, the Igor repo works very good! No more pulls from different
sources and add patches which breaks with newer multiproto revisions :)
