Hey Eric,

I've got a very similar setup to you, ATI remote wonder I with Fedora Core
4.  I've got mine working so I might be able to help.  I'll list a few
- I don't have anything in modprobe
- my lircd.conf is slightly different than yours but surfing the web I found
many versions out there and I think ATI released a few different remotes all
under the same remote wonder I name.  My gap is 227933 and yours was 227951,
don't know if that will make a difference.

What is the permission on dev/lirc*? (do a ls -l /dev/lirc*)
what are your permissions on /etc/lircd.conf (ls -l /etc/lircd.conf)

Lastly when I finally got it all working I was having a very similar issue
where IRW saw the commands but myth did not.  I rebooted and all was well, I
don't really know why that was.  Let me know and i'm sure we can get it.
