Hi Paul

Ive tried this using udev and have it matched to the remote.   I had set it
to  REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/input/remote" in hardware.conf. However, I dont get
any output from the remote using irw.

What im having after each boot is change the remote device to /dev/lirc0 or
/dev/lirc1 depending on where the remote is placed agains
either /sys/class/rc/rc0/ or /sys/class/rc/rc1/

I cant find anywhere to point /sys/class/rc/rc0/ to /dev/input/remote
