First at all, thanks you for answers (and the help!!)
I'm on an Ubuntu Linux 7.04, with 2.6.20-16-generic kernel.
The AF9005 adapter works correctly (my with Kaffeine), but i'm trying to use
the remote control unit inside the usb adapter.

After install mercurial and v4l-modules, my dmesg says:

[12178.092000] usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address
[12178.308000] usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[12178.316000] dvb-usb: found a 'Afatech DVB-T USB1.1 stick' in cold state,
will try to load a firmware
[12178.416000] dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file 'af9005.fw'
[12178.936000] dvb-usb: found a 'Afatech DVB-T USB1.1 stick' in warm state.
[12178.936000] dvb-usb: will use the device's hardware PID filter (table
count: 32).
[12178.940000] DVB: registering new adapter (Afatech DVB-T USB1.1 stick)
[12178.944000] DVB: registering frontend 0 (AF9005 USB DVB-T)...
[12178.944000] input: IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver as
[12178.944000] dvb-usb: schedule remote query interval to 200 msecs.
[12178.944000] dvb-usb: Afatech DVB-T USB1.1 stick successfully initialized
and connected.

 I would use the remote control to convert my linux box on a complete HTPC
box with mythtv or mplayer.

Searching on luca's web, I found a new Readme.lirc and a af9005-lirc.c. I
tried build it as readme says and I got lots of make errors:

I've modified the Makefile in correct folder and added the flag
"-I/usr/src/lirc-0.8.1/", just where I've decompressed the lirc sources.

I have any questions:
1 - the dvb-usb-af9005-lirc module (if i can compile it) will be as a module
of lirc defaults?? how is it used??

2 -  the remote module charged with v4l-dvb standards modules doesn't work??
Can't be used with lirc or another way??

3 - dmesg seems to recognize the IR-receiver inside of  USB DVB receiver as
/class/input/input11, can be lirc configured to use it?? On README.lirc he
said he have a serial IR receiver, but can we use lirc with the IR-receiver
inside of dongle??

  Thanks in advance for your help!!
