See if you get a /dev/input/eventX device node, if yes you can test
the remote with:

	ir-keytable -d /dev/input/event0 -t

(or whatever one you get; ir-keytable belongs to multimedia/v4l-utils.)
If it works you can setup lirc, see it's pkg-message.

 I think I played once with an uhid remote and couldn't get repeat
to work at least with lirc...  (I then patched the vdr remote plugin
for this as vdr handles repeat differently.)

 Well then the driver probably didn't setup the uhid part and expects
you to use /dev/input instead...  At least I see af9035_rc_query as
well as it913x_rc_query in




respectively (not quite sure which one your tuner uses, you could
build webcamd with the DEBUG knob enabled and look at the log when
starting it manually to find out, and while you're at it also look
for logs containing "ir_mode=" and "ir_type=" if its af9035.)

 ..or the Linux code doesn't support your tuner's remote or (kinda
less likely) there's still code missing in webcamd.


 HTH, and sorry for the late reply...
