Thanks for the answer on the hauppauge remote. Debian ships the 0.8.3
packages now. However they don't seem to improve the philips microsoft
MCE remote. With 0.8.3 I have the same effect:
The driver installs OK,
Lircd starts OK.
When pressing a key on the remote, the led in the receiver lights up OK.
But irw does not show any output...(not OK;-(
I can't find any debugging information to help me further.
The problem started when I switched from 0.8.0 to 0.8.2. But then I
also upgraded the rest of the system, so I can't be sure. What could
have changed, that causes this problem?
