You have to have a lircd.conf to map keys to IR signals. What type of
remote do you have? If it's one that's already known you can download
a lircd.conf for it. Otherwise you can shut down lircd and use
irrecord to create one. Have a look at recent messages in these
archives as I think this has come up recently.
