[mythtv-users] ira-3 receiver and URC-6131remote

When using an irman, it is not necessary to use irrecord, as there is a
program that comes with libirman that acts in a similar manner, but works
better.  From there, you can convert that into a lircd.conf file, like that
on my website.

Once I got into JP1, I found that I preferred a MCE receiver to an irman,
as the irman is way to sensitive (it responds to any IR, even that of othee
remote controls and laptops).  I havn't used an irman in at least a year
(nor the 6131), but leave the info on my website in case anybody else wants
