Thx for info I will give this a try and see what happens.  However I have the following questions:

I have a PVR-150 that uses an ir-blaster to control my STB it also comes with an ir-receiver.   I haven't yet attempted to mess with the ir receiver but now may be a good time as any.  

Is there a possibility of messing things up i.e having 2 different ir servers running for the PVR-160 and the HD-160 case?   The reason I ask is that I am not sure whether getting the ir receiver (for HD-160 case) to work will mess up with the operation of the PVR-160 ir blaster.   I believe the software that fires the blaster may also be the one that is litsening for ir transmissions for the PVR-150.

Here is where it gets a bit messy.  I already installed LCDproc from (the linux lcd driver website), but it never worked.  I will uninstall LCDproc but it is possible it may have installed some config files .. could this be an issue?

finally would you have a working lirc file that works with your Zalman HD-160 case?  

thx in advance
