I currently have the blaster part of a Hauppauge HD-PVR working on It wasn't easy. It uses a modified (by me) lirc_zilog and it never hangs because it never reads back from the i2c bus. I only use it in MythTV to change channels on a cable STB so I don't need the ir receiver part to work.

I've tried 2.6.35-27 with no luck. All the drivers load including lirc_zilog but it never gets probed, ( ie ir_probe() never gets called ).

What's up? is it hopeless? I only need the blaster side of things.
