It will be easier with the kernel you compiled yourself. First of all, download the patch from: http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/75883/raw/ Then, move to the source directory of your 22.214.171.124 kernel and apply the patch: $ cd ~/src/linux-2.6.32 $ patch -p2 < ~/download/saa7134-Fix-IR-support-of-some-ASUS-TV-FM-7135-variants.patch Adjust the path in each command to match your own setup. Then just build and install the kernel: $ make $ sudo make modules_install $ sudo make install Or whatever method you use to install your self-compiled kernels. Then reboot to kernel 126.96.36.199 and test that the remote control works even when _not_ passing any card parameter to the driver. If you ever need to remove the patch, use: $ cd ~/src/linux-2.6.32 $ patch -p2 -R < ~/download/saa7134-Fix-IR-support-of-some-ASUS-TV-FM-7135-variants.patch I hope my instructions are clear enough, if you have any problem, just ask.
