argh, second time now I forgot about the PIC,
but until today it has no single hit in the bttv-gallery and is on so
many cards. Peter gave all necessary info on the video4linux-list and
points since ages that the MSI is a LifeView clone.

It means the remote works, but the patch for the TRIO uses polling
currently and is not yet in the master repository.

The chip is expected to be a pic16c505 at 0xb. Patch is here.

Eddi De Pieri's patch is partly based on Henry Wong's code for the MSI
TV@nywhere Plus remote with KS003. The current plan is to get at first
that code in through the Kworld ATSC-110 Dwaine Garden is working on.
One remaining issue is to try to get the ir chip initialization to
saa7134_board_init1 and to make all easily usable for other similar

We can expect full GNU/Linux support for the card.
