Well I have good news! After a long frustrating weekend I'm up and
I re-patched source for the 2.6.31 kernel then downloaded the firmware.
It took me a while to understand how lirc needed to be configured. Then
I finally found a lircd file for my STB. The last piece of the puzzle
was realizing that the zilog chip can only xmit a fixed group of
We're a Time Warner area here. Our STBs have generic A, B, & C buttons
to manipulate on-demand and PPV menus. It sure would be fun to pipe the
on-demand through Myth. I'm guessing the zilog chip can't supply that
