Heh.. Fedora Core 3 and ATrpms..  (I told you the wife hates software
upgrades..)  LIRC version is 0.8.0.. I can't get the exact versions as the
box is not on a network...  usually the downgrade fixes the issue, but
this time it didn't.  I'm sure the upgrade change a config file

I do think that if I do get the lirc working again, I'll stop with the
updates until I can get a new box..  evenmore so with the PVR-350 support
going downhill fast..  :(
