won't get chance to do this tonight, will run these commands tomorrow.

no need to run those commands... it's just the output to see if we can find out how to get this sh*t working

This looks pretty promising!
Shame I don't have the machine anymore else I'd be all over this, so pls bear with me while I try to work this out from memory and with you as a proxy!
Was there any other messages in dmesg related to this? What about /var/log/messages?
It *looks* here as if it has registered the serial IR receiver device, but I would have expected it to say where it registered it to in /dev/. Is there now any device on /dev/lirc* ?
What does "ls -al /dev/input/by-path" (as root) give?

Good news! A part of it at least...
I received a reply from Asrock today, here's what they say:
Seems that they are working on it, but in what timeframe it will be ready...

I shutdown my Asrock last night from ubuntu and this morning when I switched on the TV it was on really loud, so I turned my Samsung TV down. Strangly my Asrock turned itself on!
I've checked it again and it definately isn't a fluke

More (same) news from ASRock:
I'm still thinking that this IR controller can be run using one of the default kernel modules supplier in lirc.
I think the lirc_serial module is the best bet. Has anyone else tried "modprobe lirc_serial" and then checked dmesg and /var/log/messages for any hopeful signs?

No new entry
After running the "modprobe lirc_serial" you get "/dev/lirc0" but still the remote doesnt work.

Hmmm, but it creates the device in /dev so that makes me think the driver *does* work.
After the modprobe, can you try running "mode2" then button mashing the remote? Any joy?
Or maybe you need "mode2 --device=/dev/lirc0"
Any luck with that?

I have send Nuvoton a mail asking about driver suppport.
Also in the Linux kernel source I found support for W83667HG, tough targeted as hardware monitor support.
I sent an author (from Nuvoton) a mail
I will also sent ASRock a mail.
I will post updates when I receive replies.
