I posted my kernel config in the other thread - for lirc, my only use 
flags were X and transmitter.  I have LIRC_DEVICES="hauppauge" in my 
make.config, but I don't think that's necessary.  It's super important 
to realize that the hdpvr's blaster is not a normal lirc blaster that 
can just blast any old IR.  It has a code table, and needs a special 
lircd.conf.  See steps 8, 11 and 12 from
