I don't think this is likely. Hauppauge has been unofficially talking
to me about stuff like this. But read on...

Which driver version are you using and where did it come from? I ask
because IR support for 24xxx devices didn't work until fairly recently.
The released in-kernel driver (2.6.18 and 2.6.19) don't have this
support because the needed changes didn't get merged until the 2.6.20
merge window. The current v4l-dvb repository has the changes, and the
last few standalone pvrusb2 drivers (see the change history) has support
for 24xxx IR.
