well, i think i understood the following by now (hopefully, somebody will 
correct me, or, even better, confirm):

for all known devices, there are files 
in /usr/src/linux/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-usb, which have a table / array of 
known keycodes in them. for the freecom / yakumo dvb-t stick, this should be:
dtt200u.c and object-file, right?

now if i owned a hauppauge remote control, all i'd have to do is copying the 
keycode table over from nova-t-usb2.c, and i'd have a working input device 
for this remote, that i could happily pass over to inputlircd? 

what's the correct way of determining these codes for a new remote control? 
can i dump the not_key_tabled-keycodes somewhere? a working lircd (not 
inputlircd) maybe?

Thanks for your help!
