Thought I would just let you guys know where I went with this...
for €16.90 Thomas built and shipped to me an internal IR receiver for my
VIA EPIA, which just plugged straight into a spare COM2 port on my m/b
and sits behind a grille at the front of my case.
For that sort of money, it's just not worth messing with the Hauppauge
receivers that I have.
I trained lirc with one of the Hauppage remotes and now have myth and
xine working perfectly from the comfort of the sofa. I can tell that
even my wife is impressed with my myth setup for once !
My thanks to Thomas and to all the people on this list who helped me
with this one.
Just installed 0.20 - looking good - my thanks to all the myth
developers who made this happen.
