I struggled for about a month with this. Eventually, I ended up
modifying budget-ci.c to make the remote work. I found that the Nova-t
doesn't use LIRC at all, the only problem being that I have to recompile
everytime I install a new kernel.
Your method seems so much easier, so I'll have to give it a go!
