I am trying to setup the referenced ir receiver.

I have followed Jared's Guide, But lircd will not stay running.

I looked at Keeto's guide and gave that a try-

irrecord gives me the following error:
# irrecord --driver=irman --device=/dev/ttyS1 ./directv.irman

irrecord -  application for recording IR-codes for usage with lirc

Copyright (C) 1998,1999 Christoph Bartelmus(lirc at bartelmus.de)

irrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check 

lircd is not running the serial port has 777 for permissions

Any help would be appreciated.
