Pinnacle PCTV Remote Kit for Windows Media Center

2.0 USB infrared receiver/blaster
on the back of the black remote it says RC6 
MCE_Remote the black on the the far right "1069/335(UK/AU)"


Mythbuntu 9.04 fix

this remote didn't work for me right out of the box with Mythbuntu 9.04 x64 I had setup lirc to use mceusb2 ( Windows Media Center Remotes new version Phillips ) in the Mythbuntu Control Centre

The following is what I did do get it working and this page Ubuntu_lirc_install might help you too

lsusb | grep Pinnacle
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 2304:0225 Pinnacle Systems, Inc. [hex] 
cd /dev/
ls | grep lirc
lircd ( if you only see this do the following )
sudo -i ( to become root )
apt-get install lirc-modules-source
dkms remove -m lirc -v 0.8.4a -all
dkms remove -m lirc -v 0.8.4a --all
dkms add -m lirc -v 0.8.4a
dkms -m lirc -v 0.8.4a build
dkms -m lirc -v 0.8.4a install
rmmod lirc_mceusb2
modprobe lirc_mceusb2
/etc/init.d/lirc restart
irw /dev/lirc0
connect: Connection refused
dmesg | grep lirc
