Linux Kernel Configuration

In linux kernel since version 2.6.38 (release Date: 2011-03-14)  
Enable support for Remote Controllers on Linux. This is
needed in order to support several video capture adapters,
standalone IR receivers/transmitters, and RF receivers.

Enable this option if you have a video capture board even
if you don't need IR, as otherwise, you may not be able to
compile the driver for your adapter.

Say Y when you have a TV or an IR device.
