[mythtv-users] Linux: Replacement for lirc_zilog driver

So with the upgrade to 18.04, it isn't just that LIRC was broken - They
took the entire lirc_zilog driver way.

They replaced it with ir-kbd-ic2, the notice is here:

So now it doesn't use the lirc.conf I was using to send IR blaster
information from the HDPVR to my STB.  I did see in the dmesg the notice
"add enable_hdpvr parameter", so I created /etc/modprobe.d/ir-kbd-ic2.conf
with the line

options ir-kbd-ic2 enable_hdpvr

I now use my script that I used before and it lights up the HDPVR and no
errors are generated - but also, no information is sent to the STB.

Has anyone found documentation on how to use this driver to send blaster
information via the HDPVR ?
