I had to compile and install lirc from CVS to enable support for the
DViCO remote.  The latest debian/ubuntu package was quite old and didn't
know anything about that particular remote.  I don't remember what I did
after that.  It just worked without anything tricky going on.

On the usb front, do you get something like this in your boot log?

[   30.947127] hiddev96: USB HID v1.10 Device [DVICO DVICO USB HID
Remocon V1.00] on usb-0000:00:02.0-2
[   30.947135] usbcore: registered new driver usbhid
[   30.947138] drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.01:USB HID core driver
