Hmm ok, if noone else steps up...  The only `lirc hardware' I have
are some usb dvb tuners and this `Hootoo' usb mediacenter remote,
and the latter I couldn't get to work properly with lirc because
of the way it handles repeat (i.e. it doesn't, it returns the code
at button press and a zero at button release and I didn't find an
easy way to make lirc behave with a device acting like that.  I did
get that remote to work with the vdr remote plugin tho, only some
buttons don't seem to return anything.)
