   I think my capture card/remote(Hauppauge WinTV Theatre) falls under
the second area from Jarod's site labeled "For those with bttv-based
cards:".  In this area he says nothing of an .lircrc file.  Do I need
one? I did follow the instructions for the lircd.conf file.  I chose the
/usr/share/doc/lirc-0.7.0/remotes/hauppauge/lircd.conf.hauppauge file. 
Let me know what you think.
