Yes. Note the part where it says "Leadtek IR". :) (It should say
"Hauppauge IR" there, iirc).
This is an issue with an old version of lirc_i2c mated with a
sufficient recent kernel. This was fixed in lirc cvs quite a while
back, so all you need is a newer lirc_i2c (like, for example, the one
in the lirc 0.8.7 release), and it should then work just fine.
