I'm using 0.8.2 right now, I'm not positive exactly when it stopped
working... the remote works, just the repeat in the volume key used to work,
and now it doesn't... It seems like that happened between .7 and .8, but I'm
not positive, but the differences between the lircd.conf files included in
each release made me think that must have been when it happened, again they
lircd.conf.realmagic from 0.7
lircd.conf.realmagic from 0.8
where 0.7 worked fine, now in 0.8 the same configuration file has been
changed to specifically mention "Not for use with the serial port connected
IR receiver" and I was just annoyed whoever didn't write that comment,
didn't mention what I was supposed to use instead.
It's not a huge deal, the remote still works besides the non-repeating, and
I'm sure there aren't too many other people out there still using this
remote who give a crap... but I do!
