Not quite. There's only one possible lircd.conf.devinput, and it covers
all possible (individual) buttons. With devinput, the buttons are all
converted into Linux input namespace keycodes, which are 100%

I believe the issue here is that you're using something other than the
stock Hauppauge remote with a Hauppauge receiver. You'll have to push
an updated keymap into the kernel here, using ir-keytable from the
v4l-utils package (which isn't quite in Fedora yet, but will be RSN).
ir-keytable can also help you generate said keymap, as it'll show the
scancodes for pressed buttons that aren't mapped to keycodes.

Yes, we need more documentation here. :)
