I have bought a Pinnacle PCTV.
With it I also got a small serial IR dongle and a remote control.
Is it usable with lirc?
I configure setup.sh by selecting Pinnacle PCTV (pro), make and make =
install, everything goes fine.=20
If I run mode2 it exits with a message that makes me understand that it =
doesn't make any sense to use it.
I don't know how to go on at this point.
What I see is that it is actually not compiling the lirc_serial module, =
is it needed?
If not, what should I check to understand that everything is working?
Sorry, maybe these are stupid questions but, up to now, I couldn't get =
an answer on my own!

Firtable apoligies if my question sounds very newbie but i was very fustrated trying to make the Pinnacle PCTV remote control runs.
1.- I've compiled and installed lirc-0.6.6 successfully.
2.- lircd deamon startup ok:
Nov 7 23:38:21 sha1 lircd 0.6.6: lircd(pctv) ready
3.- When I run irw it kills lircd and i get the following message in the /var/log/lircd:
Nov 7 23:44:52 sha1 lircd 0.6.6: accepted new client on /dev/lircd
Nov 7 23:44:52 sha1 lircd 0.6.6: could not reset tty
Nov 7 23:44:52 sha1 lircd 0.6.6: caught signal
I'm unable to know why the lircd cannot reset the tty :,(
Linux Distro: RedHat 7.3 (kernel 2.4.18-3)
Pinnacle ir receiver is connected to my serial port (COM1)
/dev/lirc -> /dev/ttyS0
Any help will be welcome.
Thanks in advance.

Are you using the lirc_serial module? You don't need it.

What does 'setserial /dev/ttyS0' show?

Run lircd. Run irw. That's it.
