[mythtv-users] Getting lirc working

I'm trying to use the remote through lirc, but help and documentation is 
scarce. I have a KWorld Global Terminator TV card (saa7134-based) with a 
built-in IR. The cat /proc/bus/input/devices for which gives:
I: Bus=0001 Vendor=1131 Product=0000 Version=0001
N: Name="saa7134 IR (V-Stream Studio TV "
P: Phys=pci-0000:01:07.0/ir0
S: Sysfs=/class/input/input2
H: Handlers=kbd event2
B: EV=100003
B: KEY=2c0814 100004 0 0 0 4 2008000 2090 2001 1e0000 4400 0 ffc
FWIW. I've been trying irrecord -H dev/input -d /dev/input/event2 
lirc.conf but when I follow the instructions to hold down a key, I see a 
period, then eventually: irrecord: gap not found, can't continue. I've 
also tried pushing several buttons. As long as I keep doing that I get 
more periods, but if I stop, it quits and complains about an absent gap. 
What do I do?
