Linux info from <command: uname --all> is: Linux debian 2.6.32-5-amd64 
#1 SMP

Command used to show my Mythtv status was <gary at debian:~$ mythbackend 

    Please attach all output as a file in bug reports.
    MythTV Version   : 0.23.1
    MythTV Branch    : tags/release-0-23-1
    Network Protocol : 23056
    Library API      :

    using_pulseoutput using_backend using_directfb using_dvb
    using_firewire using_fribidi using_frontend using_glx_proc_addr_arb

It looks like Lirc was included when mythtv was installed.
Last 3 evenings spent searching for guidance in setting up lirc
But most of it was "Greek" to me.

What I want to do is be able to change channels of a satellite set top 
box from the pc keyboard - (want to try controlling the stb using the 
usb port)

What needs to be installed (or configured) to get lirc working?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated
