Yeah, now that I look you're right. The AF9015 does decoding, but you do 
have some flexibility in that the chip supports RC6 and NEC protocols 
and you can give the chip your own decoding table to set the key code 
that the chip sends for each button, hence you can use the dongle as a 
normal keyboard and make up a table that sets the keys you want.....I'll 
have to look into it further if I find a remote I like that runs on 
either of those protocols (ie any universal remote that has decent key 

Either way, Luca I think you should definitely keep your module as a 
generic lirc input driver, and possibly submit it for inclusion  in lirc 
as opposed to inclusion into dvb. Just make a note of it in a text file 
on the chip that can live in the Documentation directory.
