thanks -- you're quick! :-) i'll give this a try when i get a chance.
i'm realizing, however, that my problems may have only just
begun. the "other" client in my case is "lircd
--driver=audio_alsa", which will continuously read the input
samples and interpret the data to generate IR remote-controller
codes. the advantage of this over many other LIRC solutions is
that it needs no special kernel drivers -- it's all user-space.
however, a) it's alsa-based, and nas is using the alsa/oss
compatibility layer, b) it may or may not be good about only
opening the input device, and c) you've already implied that my
hardware may be half-duplex. so none of this may work in the end
i'll let you know how it goes.
