I possibly am, I have a couple of hauppage cards in there with remote
support. I must admit I just rely on the USB receiver being
initialised first and ending up as /dev/lirc0, but I suspect a udev
rule could be written to force this.

the only issue I had moving to the kernel based drivers, other than
taking a while to find the correct configure command for liirc was to
have to configure X to not see the mceusb remote as a keyboard (lots
of double presses!)
