That's got to be the quickest "Maybe tomorrow." I've ever come across. :)

OK linux lesson time here but when I do "rmmod dvb-usb-af9015" I loose the
/dev/input/event7 and associated links files. When I do "modprobe
dvb-usb-af9015 debug=2" the files don't come back. There's probably
something really obvious I'm supposed to do here but I've no idea what it

from /var/log/messages

Once again I'm not "at" my PC so I can't press any buttons on the remote
but I suspect it won't work at this point.
