I've had a Hauppage PVR-150 (a MythTV box) working with lirc from
FC6->F10 and been banging my head against the wall for a week trying
to get the remote to work in F11.  At first I thought with F11
locations of some of the config files moved from the atrpms version
(e.g. /etc/lirc/hardware.conf vs. /etc/sysconfig/lirc).  I tried so
many things and irw comes up empty when using the Hauppauge remote.

Are you saying the kernel itself doesn't have something configured
properly and I should stop wasting my time until this new kernel makes
it out into the wild?  Or am I missing something in one of the config

Thanks, in advance!

My config details are below.  The only caveat is that I have USB imon
VFD with volume knob (which works fine with lirc_imon -- irw spits out
the correct codes when turning it) in an Antec Fusion case connected
that appears as /dev/lirc0 and the Hauppauge becomes /dev/lirc1.

# The infrared receiver (and/or transmitter) driver to be used by lircd(8),
# similar to passing "-H driver" to lircd(8).
# Run "/usr/sbin/lircd -H help" to get a listing of supported drivers.

# Which lirc device will be used by lircd(8).
# This is the same as passing "-d device" to lircd.
# An empty value will use the default /dev/lirc device.

# If "yes", the init script will try to start lircmd(8) too.
