hey jeff -
i'm using lirc with myth and a pvr-250 here. got sound and lirc working
fine. i'm having a problem with the ivtv drivers -- at least that's the
current suspect -- which causes lockups. but all else works.
i had to do a thingie to lirc in rc.sysinit to get it to come up
consistently. trick from jarod's site as i dis-remember.
this is what i'm currently using:
cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.
