I'm really sorry for annoy you again but I've now another question which 
seems that it could be solved by you guys at the best.
I've googled much but can't find a HowTo or a Documentation to integrate 
the custom lirc file which Luca wrote (or generally an costum lirc file) 
into LIRC.
So I would guess I've to put the file somewhere before "make" and "make 
file" but I'm everything else then sure.
And that's the way it comes that I beg you to tell me a how. Because 
after the Stick runs great the remote is the last thing I need to be 
absolutely happy :)

Please help me :)

bye Matthaeus
