If it works I should imagine so - according to Hauppauge UK any RC5 based
remote *should* work with their IR receivers.

Ashley (and others),

I've tried getting the Hauppauge IR receiver to cooperate with this remote -
having tried the RC5, RC5a and a couple of Sky+ Navigator lircd.conf files
I've found working in raw mode but not no avail. The Hauppauge remote works
with the RC5 based conf files, but the Sky+ doesn't (may be RC6 based - are
configs for this control set available?)

irw gives no feedback when testing the Sky+ remote, and irrecord fails after
getting no input for 10 seconds, even with the --force option.

It therefore seems that I will need a separate receiver to get this
particular remote control to work in my system.

The next problem is having only 1 serial port. I have heard that it is
possible to get a combined receiver/transmitter that runs off a single
serial port - are these available to buy from homebrew engineers (so I don't
have to try and make one!) I'd already bought a couple of transmitters from
irblaster.info which arrived very quickly, but now it seems they will be

Any tips or suggestions would be warmly appreciated,
