More info here...irw can see the signal coming from the remote

live at xbox:~$ irw

I installed my .lircrc file from

#cd /tmp
#wget http://bit.blkbk.com/mythtv-xbox.0.4.5-beta.tar.gz
#tar xpzvf mythtv-xbox.0.4.5-beta.tar.gz
#cd /tmp/live
#cp lircrc /home/live/.lircrc
#ln -s /home/live/.lircrc /home/live/.mythtv/lircrc

When I use the remote without the frontend running I can see the mouse moving
up, down, left, right, etc.  It just seems like lirc isn't letting the
mythfrontend know about the signals from the remote.

This has to be something simple to fix that I'm missing.
