>>//  This past week had to replace a dead motherboard on a system that has been running solid for 4 years with myth 0.21 and fedora 8.  Did a clean install of Fedora 14 and mythtv 0.24.  All is working well except for PVR350 remote (I have a 150 in the system as well no remote input).  I have seen where ivtv has move to the kernel and lirc_zilog is now going to be the standard.  Don't have an IR Blaster just a receiver.
>/lirc_zilog is for devices with a zilog z8 chip on them, which all support both
/>/send and receive. You still use lirc_i2c or ir-kbd-i2c for devices that do
/>/receive only (lirc_i2c is going away, ir-kbd-i2c is the way forward, can still
/>/be used with lirc using its devinput driver).
Thanks, didn't realise that.

I set LIRC_DRIVER="devinput" but it still comes up with lirc_zilog.  If I modprobe ir-kbd-i2c then lsmod|grep -i lirc i get

I restart lirc and then check irw but still no luck.  I have lircd.conf in /etc/lirc/ and my .lircrc file in the .mythtv folder.
Do i also need to set the LIRC_DEVICE? (I think the virtual device is what I need.  I saw in my searching that this is probably /dev/input/event7?)

(sorry about the other post thought I hit reply)
