Thanks for providing the pics David. I can confirm that is what my remote and
receiver look like.

Mike, thank you for the patch. I've applied it and I now have 2 new /dev/input/
event entries, 3 & 4:

[17179588.964000] dvb-usb: found a 'DViCO FusionHDTV DVB-T Dual Digital 4' in

However when I try to use them nothing happens. I have tried "cat
/dev/input/event3" and  "irrecord --driver=dev/input --device=/dev/input/event3
bob.txt", but pressing buttons does nothing. The green led on the remote goes
on when I press a button. With irrecord I get the following output after
pressing RETURN and holding a button for a few seconds:
Hold down an arbitrary button.
irrecord: gap not found, can't continue
irrecord: closing '/dev/input/event3'

I also tried with event4.

Petey.
