[mythtv-users] Buttons on Hauppauge remote behaving weird

Thanks for responding.

I've reconfigured the drivers, reinstalled the LIRC packages, edited
config files... Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, some buttons
work sometimes, some buttons never work...

The conclusion: It's just a fucking mess. The LIRC drivers and
software is completely borked. There's no helping it.

I don't know what happened between Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10 that turned
LIRC from a simple and reliable set up into a steaming pile of
configuration hell, but that's what it is now.

This is one of those step downwards that you sometimes get with open source.

Hopefully someone will set it right again. In the meantime, no user
should be subject to this amount of ridiculous dicking around with
settings and configuration files.

Oh well.
