[mythtv-users] New MCE 2005 Remote

Really trying to avoid using the kernel from source. I am using the FC3
kernel 2.6.11-14, lirc 0.7.0. Which Martin Blatter driver are you using ?

I recently helped setup an MCE 2005 remote with lirc, and also had the
intermittent detection/module loading problems.  The stable combination
ended up being lirc 0.7.0 built from source, kernel built from
source, and Martin Blatter's driver.  This was a couple months ago and that
combination of lirc/kernel/driver is still running with no detection/loading
problems, and the remote is fully functional.
