Hi Wayne,

What do you mean " If lircrc is in it's proper place, then make sure the 
button names are exactly the same in both files. "  What 2 files?

 I have the same problem and I still can't get the grey Haup. controller 
to work inside mythtv. I log on as user: mythtv and I have a directory 
named: "/home/mythtv/.mythtv" and inside that directory are 3 files (all 
the same content: from Jarod's site "MythTV native LIRC config file for 
the grey Hauppauge remote. By Jarod Wilson, 2003/12/21) named: lircrc, 
.lircrc, .mythtv. (I created 3 files cause I found discrepency in docs)

But, I still have no luck getting the controller to work inside mythtv.

Any help would be appreciated
