Updated from 9.04 to 9.10 and then to 10.04 today. Found that in both newer releases my remote stopped working. Once I made it to 10.04, I looked around and found this thread. Things look like they go back pretty far, so perhaps things are in a better shape today, as I was able to get mine working with no need for special builds.

My current kernel:
# uname -r
(System was brought up-to-date today)

My old config (that worked on 9.04 and before):
# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE_MODULES="lirc_dev lirc_i2c"

My new config (that works now on 10.04)
# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE="Hauppauge TV card"
REMOTE_MODULES="ir_kbd_i2c lirc_dev lirc_i2c"

dmesg output that let me know ir_kbd_i2c was looking good:
[ 1257.753138] input: i2c IR (CX23418 Z8F0811 Hauppau as /devices/virtual/input/input6

Fired up irw and tested a few events
000000008001018f 00 green HVR-1100
000000008001018f 01 green HVR-1100
000000008001018f 02 green HVR-1100
00000000800100ae 00 Back/edit HVR-1100

I think the codes for some things may have changed, as I believe previously the codes were recognized as a PVR-350 (also note the typo "Back/edit" not "Back/exit"). So it may require a little editing/regeneration of key config and bindings, but overall things look good.
