I've just checked that nasd (in this case for input) and alsa output to
the same sound hardware works for me. So not all hope is lost. :-)

This could be tested by first starting lircd and then nasd. nasd should
fail to open the device if lircd opens it for output as well and you
would notice if starting of nasd breaks lirc operation.

IMHO you should check this first, as this is a basic requirement.

Thanks, I'd really like to know if this works.
