Yeah, there's a device table of sorts in there somewhere,
so removing everything other than your PVR250 from it should
Specifically, in function ir_probe() there's a big switch() statement.
If you remove (#if 0) all of the cases except for the ones for "Hauppauge",
then that'll probably do the job.
Just have all of the non Hauppauge parts return -ENODEV instead of continuing.
If that all fails, then there's a $13 (delivered!) solution that works
just as well, with no LIRC required:
I don't sell them or have any connection to the seller,
but rather I'm just a happy user who also wrote a driver for it.
