I bought an MSI Megasky 580 DVB-T USB stick. The DVB part works well, 
but the stick is not responding to Channel up and Volume up remote 
buttons. I have confirmed with a digital camera that the remote indeed 
does send IR pulses when I press the aforementioned buttons.

All other buttons are usable and I am able to use them with LIRC.

I have no idea which driver version I am using, but I believe they are 
recent. :) I downloaded them with this link: 

I am running kernel 2.6.18 on AMD64. The kernel module is dvb-usb-gl861
(the USB id is 0db0:5581)

Is this a bug in the driver or do I have a faulty remote or stick?
