[mythtv-users] Hauppauge remote control on DVB-S card

Hi guys,

In my ongoing effort to get Myth running with a new Hauppauge DVB-S
card (specifically the WinTV-Nova-S-HD), I'm having trouble with the
remote control. I'm just using a default Ubuntu install with 0.22
installed on top of that. I haven't got Lirc installed as Ubuntu sees
the remote control as a native input device, which works fine for most
of the buttons, except (rather frustratingly) the Back/Exit button.

I've had a bit of a mess around with Lirc but as soon as I install it,
the remote totally stops working - the only possible response I can
get from it is seeing some garbled output from 'cat
/dev/input/eventX'. I've installed Mythbuntu Control Centre and tried
enabling Lirc and choosing each of the different Hauppauge remotes
from the list it can generate configs from but, as earlier, enabling
Lirc results in the remote completely not working.
