Im planning to use a lirc serial port reciever I bought for a few pounds on
ebay. So hoping not to run into any problems(!?)
However, Im not very clued up when it comes to IR , so not really sure what
RC6 is. As mentioned above i have a lirc serial reciever, and had problems
setting up an NTL digital remote that I think came from a PACE box. Using
lircs irrecord to try and make a config file did have much luck. Some
buttons worked, some it got confused with. Any idea how I can find outwhat
type of RC the NTL pace remote is? and what my lirc serial will work with??
Any tips from anyone when it comes to make a lirc config file?

Having set one of these up, you may find that you need to record your
own lircd.conf file, as some floating around on the net do not seem to
work completely with all remotes. Try with the online configs at
lirc.org, and see if you get it working that way first.
The remote uses RC6 signalling, which means it will not normally work
with the receiver plugged in to a Hauppauge card (they use RC5) It is
possible to set the remote to use standard Sky codes, but I'm not sure
whether these are also RC6 based or not.
I use mine with a standard serial receiver and it works fine (A couple
of buttons on the keyboard don't seem to work consistently, but I
don't use them frequently so it's not a real problem.
