If you want to use MythTV with its native LIRC support (i.e. without
running irexec/irxevent) you need to ensure you have a valid MythTV
configuration in your ~/.lircrc (and ~/.mythtv/lircrc) file.

For example, using a remote named "Hauppauge_350" in /etc/lircd.conf,
and a button named "UP" in the same file, the following block should
ensure that pressing the "UP! button on the remote sends MythTV the
"up" command:

# Up
remote = Hauppauge_350
prog = mythtv
button = UP
repeat = 3
config = Up

There are several example lircrc files for MythTV online, you just
need to ensure it is properly configured for use with your
remote/button names.
