[mythtv-users] Lirc not working with PVR-250

I'm running KnoppMyth R4V5, and can't get even a twitch from the 
remote. I can see it is emitting IR using my camcorder. I can 
occasionally get output by using 'hexdump /dev/lirc' and pressing 
remote buttons repeatedly. Can't get irw to print anything, just sits 
there. Ran lircmd, no response to the remote in X. I have the grey 
Hauppauge! remote. The number buttons are at the bottom, as are the 
colored buttons.

I'm about to jump into recompiling lirc, but not sure if that will 
help. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
