Much the same as my initial install. You need to set up the lircd.conf with
the keystrokes for your remote and then modify the ~mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc
file to use the same remote key names. it's not difficult and the remote
set up seems to be the SILVER one but I had the gray. I was really
surprised at the variations in key names between the lircd.conf and the
lircrc files. I've got most of the keys on my remote working the way I
expected now. My trouble at the moment seems to be that the remote stops
working at certain times but I'm running unstable drivers due to having a
pvr-150 in along with my pvr-350. The 350 alone worked within hours of
loading the software. Adding the 150 later has been more of an adventure 8^)
