The ASRock ION330HT nettop computers (for use as a home theatre PC) come with a Nuvoton brand infrared remote control. They apparently work with Ubuntu, but the .deb files on the ASRock web site are out-of-date, fail to install, and the documentation is poorly written.

Has anyone gotten these "Nuvoton rct6775/w836x7" infrared remote controls working in Ubuntu 10.10? How did you do it?

I have it working 100%. It requires building a custom kernel with Jarod Wilson's Nuvoton driver patch, see this thread.
