Yes, I noticed that when I downloaded the latest CVS version. Something 
that I think is a bit strange, is that when using xev to check the keys 
(wanted to be sure the new driever managed to give me the right 
keymapping), there are quite many that don't generate any results at all 
(this made me belive the driver didn't work properly), but when using 
lircd with irw the button does generate results

For the hauppauge_new the following keys don't generate anything in xev
  KEY_SELECT (shouldn't the 0x3b have been mapped to KEY_GO ?)

If thise had generated results, then you could skipp the usage of lircd as 
you could have those keyboard shortcuts.
