I'm having the same remote control issue, I'm running the Hardy deb
from their apt repo.
I've changed Lircmap.xml to look at what LIRC calls my remote but it
still doesn't respond. perhaps its because of the name of the remote?
All I know is the regular or advancedsettings log doesn't seem to show
anything in regards to lirc/remote.

of course I also can't get it to save sources (both internet and
local) between sessions, which is a bit of a pain.

and I can't even get it to get passed the initial connecting screen
after logging in on my Intrepid system...

from what I've been able to do on my Hardy system, the internet
sources work wonderfully. The interface is a bit clunky, not nearly as
nice as XBMC on my xbox or Myth, but usable, and of course being able
to watch hulu, etc. is pretty awesome.
