Packard Bell Receiver and Packard Bell FastMedia remote.

  Model: Packard Bell Receiver / Packard Bell FastMedia remote
  Type: IR remote and receiver
  LIRC support: Supported, using lirc_serial module
  LIRC Config file: [bundled with LIRC]
  Sensitivity: Very Poor

LIRC recognizes the receiver using the lirc_serial kernel module and everything proceeds by the book. However, the receiver sensitivity is poor and the remote needs to aimed dead-on to get accurate results. Overall, the setup is not very usable, and I had to throw away this receiver and remote and start from scratch.
