[linux-dvb] Problem with IR-Remote (black) Technotrend DVB-C 1500

i try to get the IR-remote control to run.

The card is detected and the appropriate kernel modules are loaded (as far as 
i can see). The IR control is mapped to /dev/input/event4 (as can be seen 
in /proc/bus/input/devices).

But a "cat /dev/input/event4" does not print anything when i press keys on the 
remote control.

Any hints ?

Some data:

Kernel version is 2.6.20 (in fact Gentoo 2.6.20-gentoo-r7)

 /var/log/messages says:
-------------------- cut -----------------------
saa7146: register extension 'budget_ci dvb'.

I have loaded the module with option "ir_debug=1" to see whether the remote 
codes are detected:

-------------------- cut -----------------------
budget_ci: received command byte 0xc3
budget_ci: received device byte 0xb5
budget_ci: received command byte 0x43
budget_ci: received device byte 0x35
budget_ci: received command byte 0xd8
budget_ci: received device byte 0x95
budget_ci: received command byte 0x44
budget_ci: received device byte 0x35
budget_ci: received command byte 0xc4
budget_ci: received device byte 0xb5
-------------------- cut -----------------------

evdev is compiled into the kernel.

It seems that the budget-ci kernel module gets the key presses,  but somewhere 
between there and the evdev they disappears.

What else can i do to track down the issue.

kind regards
