Thank you for finding this out and taking the time to make it work.
Would you please send a patch to the upstream maintainers, so that everyone can benefit from this, including us when we package this for release so that this fix will not have to be manually applied?
I'll be happy to. I'm new to linux as of 4 months ago. Always have been a windows guy. So how do you send a patch to the Upstream maintainers? Is it enough that I provide the lirc_mceusb2.c?
Let me know and I'll provide anything you like.
