Darn this webmail makes me go grazy... messes up the formating.
Just to clarify here's my answer again.

Thanks for your reply Ryan

Yes, im relatively sure it's a VFD device.

the VFD of this device works well. I just disabled the usbhid driver
for 15c2:0044 and added the device ID to the standalone iMON VFD
drivers that can be found at http://venky.ws/projects/imon/#standalone

problem is that I can't get lirc0 and lirc1 to /dev. I compiled and
installed it succesfully, modprobed lirc_imon also succesfully but for
some reason the IR driver does not load.

I suppose I just failed to edit the driver correctly. As I said, i'm no pro in this kind of stuff.
