I have a RedHat 7.3 system with the following two video capture cards:
Hauppauge WinTV + Radio
Hauppauge PVR-350 with IvyTV drivers
I have LIRC-0.6.6 installed and had it working fine with the WinTV card before
adding the PVR card.
The cards came with different remotes (WinTV -> black, PVR -> grey), but with
what I'm guessing is the same model eye.
I have the /dev entries as follows:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 5 Oct 2 19:27 /dev/lirc -> lirc1
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 61, 0 Oct 1 22:16 /dev/lirc0
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 61, 1 Oct 1 22:16 /dev/lirc1
crw------- 1 root root 81, 0 Apr 11 2002 /dev/video0
crw------- 1 root root 81, 1 Apr 11 2002 /dev/video1
I have located the lircd.conf files for both Hauppauge remotes.
Regardless of which /dev/lirc device I have /dev/lirc pointing to, and
regardless of which lircd.conf file I use, LIRC (as tested with irrecord) can
only see the black remote.
Aside: If I link /dev/lirc to /dev/lirc0, the black remote works when I
connect the eye to the WinTV card. If I link it to /dev/lirc1, it works when
I connect the eye to the PVR card. Also, the WinTV card get /dev/video0 and
the PVR card gets /dev/video1 -- I don't appear to be able to control this.
Here are the relevant entries in /etc/modules.conf:
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
options ivtv debug=1
options tuner type=2
options msp3400 once=1 simple=1
add below ivtv msp3400 saa7115 tuner
add above ivtv lirc_dev lirc_i2c
alias char-major-81-1 bttv
options bttv radio=1 fieldnr=1 gbuffers=8
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
Basically, I don't care to use both remotes, but I would like to use the (more
functional) grey remote that came with the PVR card instead of the black one.
irrecord doesn't respond at all to the grey remote. I suppose it's possible
that the remote itself is defective, but my first guess is that I have things
Can anyone give me any pointers here on how I can get the grey remote working?
I've looked all over the web and haven't found much info on having two remotes
on a system, and then most of that was how to interoperate with MythTV, which
appears to have its own lirc drivers (if I read the posts right).
Any and all suggestions, including other places to go to ask this question,
are welcomed. Thanks.

Are you using the config file from CVS?
What does appear in the system log if you press buttons of the grey
remote (use the debug=1 kernel module option).
PS: Wow, this minor number stuff really works...
