I'm trying with ubuntu lirc (debian kernel 2.6.18-4) and this output
to check input of remote:

 cat /proc/bus/input/devices | grep cx88 -A3 -B1
I: Bus=0001 Vendor=0070 Product=9002 Version=0001
N: Name="cx88 IR (Hauppauge Nova-T DVB-T"
P: Phys=pci-0000:00:09.0/ir0
S: Sysfs=/class/input/input1
H: Handlers=kbd event1

Try with lirc:

lircd -H dev/input -d /dev/input/event1

But I don't get any success with irw :/

May be I need a custom kernel ?
