Now it work. I've done two things.

reverse the ~/.mythtv/lircrc and ~/.lircrc as the symlink was done the
wrong way. Now the link is .lircrc -> .mythtv/lircrc

I also find that the lirc_i2c module was not loaded and lircd no started
before the mythfrontend was started. So I kill the mythfrontend then 

/sbin/modprobe lirc_i2c 
/sbin/service lircd start   


and bingo I get the remote.

I don't know why lirc do not start automatically as I have it setup in
my /etc/modprobe.conf as this:

lias eth0 forcedeth
alias scsi_hostadapter sata_nv
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
alias char-major-81-1 ivtv
alias char-major-81-2 ivtv
install ivtv /sbin/modprobe saa7127; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install
ivtv; /sbin/modprobe ivtv-fb
options ivtv-fb osd_compat=1
install lirc_i2c /sbin/modprobe ivtv; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install

I'm not sure if lircd is starting automatically. should I chamge
something in the /etc/modprobe.conf ??
