Thought I would just let you guys know where I went with this...

Here :


for €16.90 Thomas built and shipped to me an internal IR receiver for my 
VIA EPIA, which just plugged straight into a spare COM2 port on my m/b 
and sits behind a grille at the front of my case.

For that sort of money, it's just not worth messing with the Hauppauge 
receivers that I have.

I trained lirc with one of the Hauppage remotes and now have myth and 
xine working perfectly from the comfort of the sofa. I can tell that 
even my wife is impressed with my myth setup for once !

My thanks to Thomas and to all the people on this list who helped me 
with this one.



Just installed 0.20 - looking good - my thanks to all the myth 
developers who made this happen.
