The above referenced URL:
includes an additional 3 lines of code to be added to lirc_mceusb2.c to add support for the Pinnacle USB ir receiver:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 2304:0225 Pinnacle Systems, Inc. [hex]
If a patch could be rolled into a mainline ebuild, I'm sure lots of others would be grateful, and I could roll off of my home spun ebuild. :)
has anyone submitted upstream?
Is this still needed with 0.9.0? If yes, you should report this to upstream also
All the MCEUSB stuff is in-kernel as of 0.9.0 , so there's nothing in lirc to patch anymore.
# grep 2304 /usr/src/linux/drivers/media/rc/mceusb.c
#define VENDOR_PINNACLE 0x2304
...looks like it's in the kernel.
