There's always more than one way to skin a cat.

I use the lirc method and it works well with my DVB-T card.  One
advantage was I was able to use the existing .lircrc file from my
PVR350 system.  I just had to generate a new lircd.conf.

I don't know if the extra lirc process is particularly undesirable but
I would't have thought so, and it's never caused any problems for me.
