Hi,

- Linux Ubuntu 07-04, kept up to date
- CPU0: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+
- 2 Hauppage cards
     Hauppauge Nova-T 500 Dual DVB-T
     cx88[0]: subsystem: 0070:9402, board: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1100 
DVB-T/Hybrid [card=40,autodetected]
     cx88[0]: hauppauge eeprom: model=94009
     input: cx88 IR (Hauppauge WinTV-HVR110 as /class/input/input3

  The remote from the 1100 works fine. The remote from the T-500 
(original card), was not supported when I first compiled v4l-dvb in 
June. The code I picked up yesterday attempts to do so but fails and 
sends 2 lines to the log file every 150msec., very annoying. I had to 
patch the code to limit the output generated (patch included; I haven't 
coded in C in 15 years, so I didn't do anything fancy, a real patch 
should use a counter on a per card basis).
  Output:

Sep  1 17:43:28 mytv kernel: [   19.140000] dib0700: RC Query Failed
Sep  1 17:43:28 mytv kernel: [   19.140000] dvb-usb: error while 
querying for an remote control event.
...

   My patch changes this to
Sep  1 22:15:39 mytv kernel: [   14.888000] dib0700: Infrared Remote 
Failed (T-500 dib0700)
Sep  1 22:15:39 mytv kernel: [   14.888000] dvb-usb: error while 
querying for an remote control event.
... 10 times
Sep  1 22:15:39 mytv kernel: [   16.292000] dvb-usb: error while 
querying for an remote control event.
Sep  1 22:15:39 mytv kernel: [   18.008000] dvb-usb: error while 
querying for an remote control event, stopping polling.

  We should avoid filling up /var...
