[mythtv-users] Lirc Support

Further investigation now leads me to the fact that LIRC support is 
compiled into this particular RPM. Cruising through previous messages, 
I find that a few people have had similar problems as I described 
below. I get the following error in my mythfrontend log file:

mythtv: could not connect to socket
mythtv: No such file or directory

Research into this tells me that these messages are lirc related.

I have requested verbose stdout from mythfrontend but it doesnt 
indicate what socket it couldn't open or what file or directory it is 
looking for.

Can anyone help ?
