I see there's some activity from Antti in the af9015-mxl500x-copy-fw area
for remotes.

I got, compiled and installed the latest (although there's a NEW one just
4 minutes old) code 737994f33e83 to see if there's any action for my IR
remote bundled with my DigitalNow TinyTwin USB stick. I'm running
mythbuntu 8.04

I'm not even sure if I'm on the right track here but entries like the
following in dmesg got me excited!
input: IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver as
dvb-usb: schedule remote query interval to 150 msecs.
dvb-usb: DigitalNow TinyTwin DVB-T Receiver successfully initialized and

I'm not having ANY luck extracting any life out of IR though:

# sudo irrecord -d /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.1/usb2/2-2/input/input7

irrecord: default_init(): No such file or directory
irrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check

Same story with /dev/input/event7, I've turned lirc off and irw just
refuses  to connect.

Is there anything I should try or anything I can test?
