I bought a creative labs Audigy 4 (not platinum) and included with it was a remote and a usb remote receiver.  I seem to be having problems getting lirc to work with this device as it doesn't seem to recognize it.  The device itself creates a device file /dev/usb/hiddev0 and if I type 'cat /dev/usb/hiddev0' and aim the remote at it and press buttons I get a response.  The only driver I could find information that uses that device is the dvico driver, but if I use that driver, start the lircd daemon and type irw to test it, I get nothing.  Information on the other creative remote receivers indicates that they're connected directly to the soundcard, but that is not true in my case.  Here is the information I have about the receiver and remote.

Printed on the bottom of the receiver:

The remote is listed as an RM-1500 and has no other information on it.

/dev/hiddev support is on.

Any suggestions on where to look or what to do would be greatly appreciated.
