Hi Neil,

Thanks for the quick response!

I sent this directly to you, but your mail server rejected my IP due to
someone in my ISPs range spamming.

The difference with the remote on the Dual card is that it plugs into
the card itself, not into a USB port. That is, it isn't a usb remote.

The driver that I am using with lirc is "dev/input".

Mine looks most like the last one.

Thanks for your help!
