Yes and No. I had it working in a flash on FC6. I went to Fry's, bought
the card, came home snapped it in one of my front end machines and ran
alsamixer, unmuted the IC Out line and it was sending digital signals to
my receiver for everything... it was working great. Then, I was trying
to get my MCE remote to work and somewhere in that process (not related
directly to the LIRC configuration, I'm certain) it stopped working.
Then the card vanished and I ran into ALL sorts of issues. Since it's
only a frontend box, I just gave up and blew it away about 45 minutes
ago. I'm almost done setting it back up... I'll try to post back if I
ever figure out WTF the problems is/was.
