Hi David, since running irw gives you output when you use the remote
that tells me that you have a /etc/lircd.conf in place.  The lircrc file
belongs in /home/mythtv/.mythtv .  If you just have it in your home
directory I don't believe myth will find it.  If lircrc is in it's
proper place, then make sure the button names are exactly the same in
both files.  I hope this gives you a good start, otherwise post again
with more info.
