<AOL>. My Nova-T (budget-ci) responds to some button presses on various
Philips remote controls, but none of the other devices respond to the Nova-T
remote control.

If you have a line looking like
  N: Name="Budget-CI dvb ir receiver saa7146 (0)"
in /proc/bus/input/devices then your card is similar to mine, and you can
patch budget-ci to support keymap loading.

I've just updated my patch for this to work with v4l-dvb CVS; along with the
corresponding utils patch, it's been sent to linux-dvb.

The driver (in my case, at least) is seeing the same range of values
regardless of which remote control is being used.

On the way to the corner, a dropped tool will land on your foot.
