[linux-dvb] DViCO Dual Digital Remote

I'm having some problems setting up my remote control and was wondering 
if anyone could point me in the right direction.

I've tried following a few online guides and they all state that I 
should have a /dev/hiddev0 or similar. I don't seem to have this device, 
or anything like it. I have usbhid loaded and its working (my mouse uses 
it) but it doesn't seem to detect my receiver. The only possible clue I 
have is that dmesg is reporting 'kernel: input: IR-receiver inside an 
USB DVB receiver as /class/input/input1' but nothing more.

When I cat /proc/bus/input/devices I get the following.

I: Bus=0000 Vendor=0000 Product=0000 Version=0000
N: Name="IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver"
P: Phys=/ir0
S: Sysfs=/class/input/input1
H: Handlers=kbd event1
B: EV=3
B: KEY=c00a4 218305100000000 0 110000 1b840002841 1e168000000000 10008ffc

I don't have a /ir0 (or /dev/ir0). /dev/input/event1 exists but when I 
cat it I get nothing (im assuming i should get something when i press 
the keys on the remote)

I've been struggling with this for a while now so any help at all would 
be great.
