[mythtv-users] MythTV isn't seeing my IRC events

I currently have my system configured to use the IR receiver I got with
my PVR-250. My drivers and lircd all appear to be working. irw shows
my key presses as expected.
I've spent a few hours now trying to get Myth to see my key presses, and
I'm sort of stumped.
First problem is I don't know where MythTV expects it's files. Some
FAQs say ~/.mythtv/lircrc, some say ~/.mythtv/.lircrc, some say
~/.lircrc. I have my file in ~/.mythtv/lircrc and links to it named
~/.mythtv/.lircrc, ~/lircrc and ~/.lircrc.
I've tried compiling mythtv with and without LIRC native support,
neither option seems to make any difference.
I've tried using irxevent. When I edit my lircrc file and change
program to irxevent, running irxevent shows me every single keystroke I
What am I missing?
* Where does the lircrc file really go? (I'm using mythtv-0.20.2 built
* What is the program string for native IRC support? "mythtv"?
"mythfrontend"? Nothing seems to work
* When I run via irxevent, why isn't Myth seeing the events?
* Is there any way to debug what's happening here with the frontend?
Nothing shows up in the system logs.
