If you are going to ir_keymap or any other superior solution (which I'm
for), please don't consider the dib0700-driver only, but think about the
whole dvb-usb-framework... Only the driver specific part can be found in
the drivers. The input-stuff is located in dvb-usb-remote.c
Loading the ir-tables from userspace would be the preferred solution, like
that any IR-receiver on any device could handle any remote-control
(requiring a generic IR-decoder in the device's firmware) without changing
Is lirc already in-kernel now? Can the event-interface handle raw keys (so
that a user-space thing could translate them to their real meaning?)
