> I've had a Hauppage PVR-150 (a MythTV box) working with lirc from
> FC6->F10 and been banging my head against the wall for a week trying
> to get the remote to work in F11. At first I thought with F11
> locations of some of the config files moved from the atrpms version
> (e.g. /etc/lirc/hardware.conf vs. /etc/sysconfig/lirc). I tried so
> many things and irw comes up empty when using the Hauppauge remote.
> Are you saying the kernel itself doesn't have something configured

> Thanks, in advance!
> My config details are below. The only caveat is that I have USB imon
> VFD with volume knob (which works fine with lirc_imon -- irw spits out
> the correct codes when turning it) in an Antec Fusion case connected
> that appears as /dev/lirc0 and the Hauppauge becomes /dev/lirc1.
