Revision 11252 added functionality that if MythTV does not find
$HOME/.mythtv/lircrc, the standard $HOME/.lircrc file is used instead,
but you have the former. If you link the file to /home/mythtv/.lircrc,
does it change anything?

Does your lircrc file work with other programs, such as mplayer or xine?
