Just a heads-up, that event number could easily change from boot to boot.
You can preserve your sanity by making a udev rule like the following and
put it (or a symlink) in "/etc/udev/rules.d/"

KERNEL=="event[0-9]", ATTRS{name}=="cx88 IR *", SYMLINK+="lirc%n"

I *think* that rule should work for you Hauppauge card, but I'm making an
educated guess on the 'ATTRS{name}=="cx88 IR *"' bit.

You can confirm/correct the rule by running the following as root:
  % udevinfo -a -p `udevinfo -q path -n /dev/input/event1`
where event1 is the lirc dev you want.  Hopefully the appropriate match
rule is self-explanatory.  '*' behaves as a shell-like wildcard.
