Hi Mike.

2900 & HVR-1950.  2900 has had some flaky IR detection problems.  ...
basically, I just decided to disable IR (lircd) support over all due to
stability problems and little time to debug.

The platform I'm using 2x750 P3 w/ 1G RAM (Intel 440BX).

$ uname -a
Linux localhost2.local 2.6.32-gentoo-r2Y #5 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jan 26
12:45:13 AKST 2010 i686 Pentium III (Coppermine) GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

I haven't actively used the 2900 model in a long time since purchasing
the HVR-1950, but it is loaded and ready to catch analog TV signals if
need be.  I was just recently thinking of disconnecting it because I
haven't done anything with analog... but would keep it as I'm
researching amateur radio/tv uplink/downlink... dunno what's within that
arena yet -- as I'm in the middle of nowhere (aka Alaska).

Lemme know whatcha need.  If one is working on another platform, I'd
immediately speculate chipset/CPU issues.  ... or maybe you have a flaky
2900 like mine... that's going to drive u insane??
