>I am rebuilding my MythTV system.  The previous one had a Hauppauge cap
card which crapped out (video out portion).  I want an IR receiver on my new
system and I'm wondering if I can use >this card for that purpose (it has
built in IR) without using any of the other functions on it.  


>If not, or if that's a bad idea, does anyone know where I can buy a
receiver so I can use the handheld remote that came with the Hauppauge?  I
checked the Wiki, but it suggests a homebrew >receiver (I've got enough on
my hands with the MythTV rebuild, thanks) or buying the Microsoft MCE







I had a similar problem - and had to remove the Nova-T500 card from my
system (replaced with a USB DVB-T tuner) - and yes I kept the Hauppauge
remote, by using a streamzap USB receiver (which I already had).

I used irrecord to setup the new lircd.conf, the remote codes don't even
remotely (nice pun) match the ones when it was using the IR receiver plugged
into the tuner card. 

Best thing is it solved also the issues I'd had from 8.04,8.10,9.04 with
/usr/share/hal/fdi/preprobe/20thirdparty/lirc.fdi, the udev rules and
/dev/input events annoyances.


Here's the lircd.conf I recorded for the NovaT-500 Remote using the
Streamzap USB receiver .

You can get a cheap remotes with USB IR receivers on dealextreme (if you
don't have a spare like I did)



Or even a whole remote that looks a lot like the Hauppauge one.
