Hi Tobias,

i don't have an /dev/input/input21, and if i understood the web page 
correctly, it's always the same device. It says:

But Linux systems runing recent udev will automatically create non-varying 
names, a nicer and automatic way of providing a stable input event name:

ls -l /dev/input/by-path on my system
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2008-06-22 09:56 pci-2-1--event-ir -> ../event9

which disappears if i plug out the stick and reappears if i plug it in again.
eg. now it's reported as:
kernel: input: IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver as /class/input/input11

Best regards, Lutz
