[linux-dvb] Hauppauge IR remote codes & basic C programming

I'm trying to get some more granluarity on the IR codes produced by my 
remote and WinTV Nova-T card.

Darren Salt has done some great work getting extra buttons working, but I'd 
like to understand better how the IR codes are processed and end up 
recognised by the modules.  Specifically I need more granular codes from my 
remote, as it conflicts with my TV remote.

Darren's patch 
I think was written for an A415 remote, but this patch stops any codes 
appearing while monitoring 'input-events 2'.  My remote is a Grey R808-HPG-S 
0604 002568.

My c programming is very poor.  What does the command 'ir->sampling = 
(0x1E<<6) | 1'   do??  Is 'ir->sampling' a variable? (can you have '-' & '>' 
in a variable????)
If so, and his A415 remote generates 0x16 to 0x1E (if this is what this 
means), how do I find out what my remote sends?

Also, what does 'ir->release = jiffies + msecs_to_jiffies(120)'  do?

Finally, is there any app that will decode ALL IR codes received, or do the 
expected codes need to be compiled into the modules - from manufacturer 
datasheets or something??
Can anyone help?
