Yeah, and incidentally -- HOW (and I mean in a SANE way)?  I have a 
homebrow IR transmitter for my dish network system and I would like to 
use the IR receiver on my PVR-250.  Both have drivers, but lircd seems 
to work with only one at a time.  I'm not willing to go around and hack 
my kernel to use different major numbers for one set of devices, run 
two lircds, etc.  WTF is lirc so broken that its entire design assumes 
only one IR device on a system anyway?
