There is always the possibility. :) You'll likely end up with two lirc  
devices in /dev and you'll need to figure out which one goes to which  
device. I know that the irserver software will not mess with the  
pvr-150. I had them both loaded at the same time at one point and both  
were accepting key presses. Once I got the HD-160 receiver working as  
I wanted, I got rid of the PVR one.

Yeah, that will get messy. Just be aware of where things get installed  
when you install them. I don't use an irblaster in my system so I  
can't offer any advice on what will happen with that.

I'm guessing you are using the Hauppauge remote. I'll attach  
my .lircrc file but be warned that I have reassigned some buttons that  
make more sense on my Harmony 880 remote and for my needs.
More importantly, you'll need the .rem file so you don't have to  
irrecord all the buttons like I had to. :)
