Hi Patrick,

several months ago I sent you a patch for the Elgato USB stick. At  
this time I was not happy with the problem of the repeated remote  
keys. Since this was fixed by Devin here it is again. The patch is  
against v4l-dvb from 7th Feb. 2009. So compared to the last time I  
only adjusted the index in the USB id table.

As written in the patch text you need to set parameter  
dvb_usb_dib0700_ir_proto=0 (default=1). Is there a way to overwrite  
the default for a specific device as mine? Or does this make no sense  
since the needed protocol is not driven by the USB stick IR receiver  
but the remote control?

BTW: In the meantime I needed to change my email adress.


first I want tell you that after your changes the repeated IR keys  
are gone. Thanks.

In December you wrote that you 'should work on getting the dib0700  
driver integrated with ir_keymaps.c so that the it is consistent with  
other drivers.' Did you already started to work on this? Should I  
change my patch to use the ir_keymaps.c way? Which driver is a good  
example how to use it?
