Sorry about the repost, but I think the last one got lost in the nether because I didn't get any list messages for weeks after sending it, so here goes:

I asked a few questions about this device before, but I'm not sure if there's been any changes.


I originally thought it was dvico related because of the hiddev part, but think now that it's a variation of either the mceusb, or mceusb2 driver.  Unfortunately when I load the module for it, it doesn't work, it loads but doesn't find the device.  I tried modifying the lirc_mceusb2.c file to add the vendor and device numbers (0x041e and 0x3100 respectively) but it still doesn't pick it up.  The device itself is sitting at /dev/usb/hiddev0.  If I cat the device and hit buttons on the remote, I get a response but I can't get any of the tools that come with lirc to acknowlege that the device is anything it can recognize.


Here is the information that I have on it

The dongle I got, however, is completely black except with the work "CREATIVE" printed on the top of it.  (the remote in the picture is not what I got)

Any ideas?  Any new developments?

Thanks.
