Cameron - Thanks for the offer. I just decided earlier today to do an install on top of Deban. Hopefully my install will go smoothly or I will take you up on your offer.

Thanks and Peace,
Mike Wafkowski

  I use the Packaard Bell IR serial receiver with myth. But I'm not using Knoppmyth, instead I've got Debian testing (etch) which I believe is similar. Mine works perfectly with pretty much no configuration, using lirc 0.7.1pre2 from the debian packages. I'm not really sure what problem you're having from your description, but if you can give me some more information, I'll try to help.

    Howdy all - Is there a soul out there who has gotten the ubiquitous cheap
    Packard Bell IR receiver and remote to work with any recent version of
    Knoppmyth?

    I've tried R5A16-22 and 26 and have not got the device to acknowledge it 
    exists. I've read every guide and howto I could find, installed and
    reinstalled the three mentioned versions of Knoppmyth, compiled three
    different verisions of  LIRC.

    The unit works like a champ with WinLirc... 

    A little help please?!

    TIA,
    Mike Wafkowski

    On Windows you can do this by installing the DSFilters from
    sourceforge. This then lets you right click a .nuv and convert it to 
    AVI (I think). I know you're on Ubuntu - but maybe the same filters
    are available for it as well as Windows.
