I recently upgraded my Myth box from Ubuntu 8.04 to 9.10 (runs 
2.6.31-20-generic). Previously I used the drivers from 
http://www.itee.uq.edu.au/~chrisp/Linux-DVB/DVICO/ however the card 
worked out of the box (once I got the later firmware) and so I presumed 
they had been merged.

However one thing that wasn't working was the IR receiver so I checked 
out the latest v4l-dvb code and built it (after disabling the 1394 
based ones as they broke the build) and then installed and rebooted and it
detected the IR OK, ie

Apr 13 14:40:05 mythtv kernel: [    7.601716] input: i2c IR (FusionHDTV) as 
Apr 13 14:40:05 mythtv kernel: [    7.632093] ir-kbd-i2c: i2c IR (FusionHDTV) 
detected at i2c-0/0-006b/ir0 [cx23885[0]]

And it works with lirc etc etc..

However I came to use it this morning and it now doesn't find it even if
I load the module from where it was built..
[mythtv 15:13] ~/v4l-dvb >sudo rmmod ir_kbd_i2c
[mythtv 15:13] ~/v4l-dvb >lsmod |grep ir_kbd_i2c
[mythtv 15:13] ~/v4l-dvb >sudo insmod /home/myth/v4l-dvb/v4l/ir-kbd-i2c.ko

I haven't delved much further yet (planning to printf my way through
the probe routines) as I am a Linux kernel noob (plenty of FreeBSD
experience though!).

If any one has any suggestions or patches I'd be happy to try them
out :)
