PVR-350 remote keeps changing between /dev/lirc0 and /dev/lirc1

I have an Antec Fusion htpc case which has a volume knob that uses lirc. I also have a PVR-350 tv card that also uses lirc. The problem is that every time I reboot both devices switch places between /dev/lirc0 and /dev/lirc1 which results in a not working remote.

I tried following the instructions on to make the lirc device static, but when I do a 'cat /proc/bus/input/devices' only the volume knob shows up. My PVR-350 remote isn't listed.

Is there any other way to get this working?

The OS I'm using is Debian Squeeze.

Sounds to me like the relevant modules are loading in one order on a boot, and in the reverse on a reboot. The key is to get one up and singing before the other is seen.
