[linux-dvb] Hauppauge remote controls: old & new

I now have a Nova-T 909 to go with my Nova-T SAA7146. Using the stock
2.6.15.x cx88-dvb and related modules, it seems to be working well so far,
though the remote control repeat isn't right. (I recall something about some
fixes in this area; I'll give v4l-dvb HEAD a try tomorrow.)
(I've hit an aerial pass-through problem, significantly affecting at least
the multiplex containing the ITV channels; ISTR its being mentioned
previously on at least one of these lists. Cable-splitting works fine,
With the IR receiver plugged into the new card, both remote controls can
be used but it is not possible to distinguish between them. (The old one is
model R808; the new one is model A415.)
With it plugged into the old card (and my patched budget-ci ), the new
remote control causes, for various keys, the following:
budget-ci: received key NN address 1E
For reference, the old remote control uses address 0x1F.
Perhaps my budget-ci patch  should be applied and cx88-input.c should be
modified to use the address information to avoid remote control clashes? Or
should my ir-common patches  be applied and both drivers and ir-common be
modified to allow for large keymaps, making use of the RC5 address
information where available?
 I used the new one, but I doubt that that matters at all.
The patches may not be applicable to current v4l-dvb HEAD; I'll check and
update them (if needed) later.
