>/home/mythuser/.mythtv/lircrc appears correct.  KIRC sees a "grey hauppauge"

to make sure they'r consistent (I think the standard location for lircrc
is ~/.lircrc)
ln -s /home/mythuser/.mythtv/lircrc /home/mythuser/.lircrc

Then read
  man ircat

and, logged in as mythuser, try:
  ircat mythtv

Pressing buttons on the remote should tell you if your .lircrc is correct.

Issues include: is myth compiled for lirc; are the permissions on
/dev/lirc* correct.
