    bug: TV Card Kworld 878RF /Jetway (card=78)


    I just installed Mythbuntu 10.04 32 bits on an old PC of mine (Pentium 4 2.4 GHz, 768MB RAM). I have the subject kworld 878RF card installed in this PC. The card was configured for watching TV and it works fine. Then I tried to configure the remote control. In the list of configurable remotes appears this card, but the remote control doesn't work. I tried to configure it and it failed. For me, the bug is not that it fails to configure the remote, since this remote control requires the lirc_gpio module, which is not present since kernel 2.6.16. The bug IMHO is that this card is still present in the lirc remotes list, despite not being supported since more that 3 years ago. However if anybody knows the trick to make it work with mythbuntu 10.04, I would appreciate it, because I currently own this card and the only thing that it's not working is the remote control.
