[mythtv-users] LIRC with capture card

	I have for some time now ( without mucch luck ) been trying to get the 
infrared receiver that came with my capture card ( avermedia dvb-t ) to work 
with Lirc. I'm using the 2.6.1mm4 kernel with the lirc patch ( so lirc 
support is built into the kernel ). But am having no luck with getting this 
to work. I still use the apps that you get of the lirc website right ? I'll 
attach my dmesg, any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Linux version 2.6.1-mm4 (root at localhost.localdomain) (gcc version 3.3.2
