I'm trying to get a USB IR and Remote working with LIRC, an HP/Intervideo xpc-rc01 IR receiver with PH839A remote. At this point I can get some of the buttons to be recognized by irw, but most of them are not. I BELIEVE the issue is the IR/Remote are recognized as HID devices, either keyboard or mouse input depending on the toggle button on the remote. My thought is if I can disable it as an HID device lircd can get access to all the buttons.
