English ain't my strong side, for me that statment don't make much 
sense. This is partly the same code I last year posted to the linux-kernel 
maillist with the modification of using parm to select the remote type.

Didn't know about the nova-t until now, found it after a bit of seaching 
in the v4l/nova-t-usb2.c and yes, it seems to be quite similar, just 11 
more keys on the nova-t remote.

I'm a bit worried about a thing here, I have seen some pages concerning 
lirc configuration that does refer the grey/black remote as the old one 
and on the current photos from hauppauge the remotes shipped nowadays with 
the PVR cards are grey and has 11 extra keys compared with the older 

I guess we need better names for the hauppauge remotes in general, so that 
people will have easier to know which is which, specially if all would 
happen to be using the same driver (don't know anything about the current
