I just assumed that lircd was and it was passing stuff to mythtv. Not 
based on anything, so I dunno. But until I made that symlink myth saw 
NOTHING out of the remote.

There's probably a switch for lircd telling it what device to use. I was 
just lazy. Also make sure mythtv's user has read access.

Here's what I have:

sterling at thrush:/home/sterling> ls -l /dev/lirc*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     10 2006-12-04 13:29 /dev/lirc -> /dev/lirc0
crw-rw---- 1 root video 61, 0 2006-12-04 13:29 /dev/lirc0
srw-rw-rw- 1 root root      0 2006-12-04 13:29 /dev/lircd
