Pinnacle WinTV card and serial remote control?

I am using the serial remote control receiver from a Pinnacle PCTV card with
LIRC port on a 4.9-STABLE box. The required 'pinsys' driver is installed
with the port. I did find an interesting quirk. The --driver=pinsys option
must be the first option specified to any of the programs from the port that
interact with the IR receiver. Example:
irrecord --driver=pinsys --device=/dev/cuaa0 remote.conf
Other considerations from my notes include:
Ensure that the user who will be running lircd is in the "dialer" group,
which is the group that has read/write permissions to the /dev/cuaax ports.
Create the /var/lock directory and ensure that the user who will be running
the lirc programs has write permissions to it.
Ensure that the user who will be running lircd can write the file
/var/run/lircd.pid, /var/log/lircd, and create the /dev/lircd socket.
Hope this helps.
