Hi Jarod,

looks like my modification works not only for me, in the ubuntu forum someone else was able to verify it
with a slightly different case (monueal 320 which includes also a vfd but same remote).

Since like i mentioned before my C knowledge is pretty limited the only solution i actually could come up
to keep the existing mplay driver kinda unchanged would be something like Albert Huitsing did with his ftdi driver
and pass the device string next to maybe the vendor or are there any other better ways to pass something from
the hardware.conf to the daemon drivers ?

btw thx for considering to add my little "mod" to lirc.

Arne
