Err, I've got a ATI Remote Wonder II and LIRC support is spot on.

Check your lircd.conf and verify that you don't have duplicate keys, ie.
Keys that generate the same keycodes.  A lot of those cheap remotes will
generate the same keycodes for more than one key.  For example, the one that
came with my tuner card: Left/Vol-, Right,Vol+, Up/Ch+, Down/Ch-, there are
more but those ones I'm sure of.
