Hi,

Im at a loss and need someone more knowledgeable than me to help.

All my hardware configured properly (i think) and live tv is working :) but my remote isnt. The manufacturer of the tv card does provide ubuntu compatible drivers and ive been trying to get support from their official forum without success for a few days now, seem they dont care about their users :(

Posting over there as PeterP. http://www.buydvb.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=61 As you can see from my grep I do see something about IR but try as I might i dont even know where to start really. Getting the remote working would make my wife happy and stop nagging me about not buying a settop box to go with the new satellite dish we got installed.

Anyway my "dmesg | grep cx88" returns as.....
