Using a ~/.lircrc file leads one to believe that you didn't compile lirc
as an option in myth. If that's the case, then you should look into firing
up '/usr/bin/irxevent &' in ~/.xinitrc. A better way, however, is to
compile lirc in myth and then put your lirc config in ~/.mythtv/lircrc.
That's how I've set mine up and it works rather nicely.

Hope it helps,
