I'm trying to setup lirc for myth.

My lirc configuration seems fine.

When I run irw, it works perfectly. For instance for Volume down on my 
remote it displays:
0000000000001791 01 Volume-DOWN grayHauppauge

But mythtv does not respond to the remote control.

lirc_init failed for mythtv, see preceding messages

Why is there a permission problem?

- lircd runs.
- /dev/lirc,  /dev/lirc0, dev/lircd, /dev/lircm have full permissions
