thx for your reply Andreas
i tried just running it but i get:
irrecord -  application for recording IR-codes for usage with lirc

Copyright (C) 1998,1999 Christoph Bartelmus(

irrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check permissions)

so then i tried running it as sudo.
I get
Hold down an arbitrary button.
irrecord: gap not found, can't continue
i did press a button and pointed at receiver.

so i tried sudo chmod a+x /etc/input/event7
but i get the first error when i run as normal user again.
so then i tried sudo chmod 777 /etc/input/event7
same thing still.

and when i wrote /vid/radio0 in last mail i actually meant /dev/radio0 i musta been half asleep.
