Public bug reported:


As I read some forum posts about how one could use lirc with saa7134 based cards without problems, I decided to try it myself with no success.
I have a Pinnacle 300i TV card. Modules are loaded correctly and I can view analog + dvb-t (it's a hybrid card).

I'm not sure about how to set up lirc for the built in IR receiver, but what I read most was that there should be a regular input device in /dev/input/eventX and you should be able to gather some information about the single devices in /proc/bus/input/devices.
I am not, there seems to be no input device for my IR receiver.

In the german ubuntuusers forum there is someone with a saa7134 based board as well and he reads out a device named > N: Name="saa7134 IR (Elitegroup ECS TVP3" < from /proc/bus/input/devices
I guess this is how it should be.

I am unable to find anything similar in my input devices so I thought
this would be a bug.
