You're running irw as root (for now)? Does the LED on the StreamZap 
receiver illuminate when you send codes? Have you tried other remote
controls you have lying around? (I actually have not used the StreamZap
remote itself; my universal remote emulates the old Hauppauge PVR-350
remote that I used in my first MythTV system.)

That looks right. My Feisty system has other modules depending on
usbcore (to be expected), but that's what my module list looks like,
including the size column.
