Howdy all - Is there a soul out there who has gotten the ubiquitous cheap
Packard Bell IR receiver and remote to work with any recent version of

I've tried R5A16-22 and 26 and have not got the device to acknowledge it
exists. I've read every guide and howto I could find, installed and
reinstalled the three mentioned versions of Knoppmyth, compiled three
different verisions of  LIRC.

The unit works like a champ with WinLirc...

A little help please?!

On Windows you can do this by installing the DSFilters from
sourceforge. This then lets you right click a .nuv and convert it to
AVI (I think). I know you're on Ubuntu - but maybe the same filters
are available for it as well as Windows.
