Pinnacle PCTV support(daemons/hw_pinsys.c) accepts pre-processed
codes(3-bytes at 1200 baud). mode2 is only used with un-processed
remote control data(like from hHome brew hardware, lirc_serial,etc).
So you can't use mode2 with your hardware. There should be a
pre-made lircd.conf remote control definition file that you use.
(remotes/pinnacle_systems), put this at /etc/lircd.conf.
You don't want to load lirc_serial.o.
To test: Run irw.
irw should return button press strings if you have the
remote control lircd.conf setup properly.
Compile with debug logging enabled, then run
lircd with debug option(-D5 -n), run irw.
There are debug traces in the receive
routine in hw_pinsys.c that should show up if you are receiving
If still stuck, get back to us on the list.
