[mythtv-users] HD-PVR as IR receiver under Mythbuntu, advice needed

So I've been planning my upgrade to 0.22, along with adding an HD-PVR and
replacing my frontend hardware with a Revo. The Revo doesn't have a serial
port, so my IR sensor will no longer be usable. However, the HD-PVR has an
IR sensor built-in, and from what I can gather, there is support for it in
lirc, but this support is kind of an in-progress thing.  I want to use
Mythbuntu for my myth system, and upgrade the lirc drivers to handle the
HD-PVR sensor.

In this message:


Jarod talks about ways to upgrade lirc to work with the HD-PVR. However, I
think his examples all pertain to Fedora.

Does anyone have advice on what route to take to get this working under
Mythbuntu?  I have some, but not a lot (and not in several years), of
experience with kernel rebuilding, if that ends up being necessary.
