google --> lirc pinnacle -->
http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-8.html --> "You're going to
need to know what sort of receiver you have and where it's connected.
In the case of the Pinnacle Studio TV card, with the IR receiver
connected to COM1 (/dev/ttys0), once the configuration menu comes up,
perform the configuration by going to Driver Configuration->Other
Serial Port Devices->Pinnacle Systems Receiver->OK and on the next
