[mythtv-users] Help with lirc_i2c - nothing happens..

I've got this thing *almost* working.

One exception though.. lirc_i2c

I have 2 separate hauppauge controllers.. a PVR150MCE and a PVR250.  I'm
trying to use the remote for the PVR250 (which is the second card,  the 150
is 0 and the 250 is 1)

Everything with lirc seems to start and work correctly, but when I use the
/usr/bin/irw program to check communication nothing works.

Here's my modrobe.conf file

alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
alias eth0 r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 1.1.2
alias eth1 sis900
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
options snd-card-0 index=0
install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 &&
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 ohci-hcd
# nvidia kernel module
alias char-major-195 nvidia-1_0-7174
alias nvidia nvidia-1_0-7174
# ivtv (PVR-150MCE)
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
alias tveeprom tveeprom-ivtv
alias tuner tuner-ivtv
alias msp3400 msp3400-ivtv
#options cx25840 no_black_magic=1
install lirc_i2c /sbin/modprobe ivtv; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install

I've followed wilson.net instructions and even double/triple/quadruple
checked everything and can't seem to find an issue..

I'm using the control file from the web site for the grey and black (older?)

Any help would be appreciated.
