Hrm, would also have to get it shipped to the US.

I'm assuming this is it here:
And this is the lircd.conf for it:

RC6, sure, but not the MCE-specific variant of RC6, I'm guessing.
There are multiple RC6 variants out there. :)

This likely won't work right out of the box w/the new driver via the
input layer, but *can* be made to work with it. It would probably
require no more than converting the lircd.conf you're using into an
in-kernel keytable (which can actually be uploaded into the kernel
using ir-keytable, which is in the latest v4l-utils).
