Hi Herman

Thankyou very much for your response.  The card comes with a remote and a dongle that you plug in to the back, so I assume it includes an IR decoder chip.  I think I have found the wiki entry you mentioned at http://www.linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/Remote_controllers and I will work through the instructions with my card when I get home tonight.  I assume that will pose more questions but I greatly appreciate this pointer.

Thanks again

Ben
