Remote with DVB tuner - keypresses show up in evtest but not showkey

Trying to get an IR remote as part of a DVB tuner (avermedia a835) to control my music (I don't care about the TV part). I'm running Kubuntu 13.10 on a Thinkpad T400.

It shows up in lsusb fine

 Bus 001 Device 017: ID 07ca:a835 AVerMedia Technologies, Inc.
And in /proc/bus/input/devices

I: Bus=0003 Vendor=07ca Product=a835 Version=0203
N: Name="AVerMedia AVerTV Volar HD/PRO (A835)"
P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1a.7-1/ir0
S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.7/usb1/1-1/rc/rc3/input20
U: Uniq=
H: Handlers=kbd event16 
B: EV=100013
B: KEY=1000000 0 0
B: MSC=10
And in evtest

/dev/input/event16:     AVerMedia AVerTV Volar HD/PRO (A835)
Select the device event number [0-16]: 16
Input driver version is 1.0.1
Input device ID: bus 0x3 vendor 0x7ca product 0xa835 version 0x203
Input device name: "AVerMedia AVerTV Volar HD/PRO (A835)"
Supported events:
Event type 0 (EV_SYN)
Event type 1 (EV_KEY)
Event code 152 (KEY_SCREENLOCK)
Event type 4 (EV_MSC)
Event code 4 (MSC_SCAN)
  Property type 20 (EV_REP)
    Property code 0 (REP_DELAY)
      Value    500
    Property code 1 (REP_PERIOD)
       Value    125
Testing ... (interrupt to exit)
Event: time 1384113890.257478, type 4 (EV_MSC), code 4 (MSC_SCAN), value 516
Event: time 1384113890.257478, -------------- SYN_REPORT ------------
Event: time 1384113890.757480, type 4 (EV_MSC), code 4 (MSC_SCAN), value 516
Event: time 1384113890.757480, -------------- SYN_REPORT ------------
But when I run showkey -s, I don't get any scancodes.

Do I have to tell showkey where to look? Configure something to listen to event16 rather than my keyboard or whatever? What have I done wrong?
