Josh, I am using the original remote control on this particular
front-end.  On another front-end system where I use a Streamzap USB
receiver and a universal remote there was a kernel update to F14
sometime last fall that kind of broke lirc for me.  If you are using
the latest kernel on F14 then this might not be related, but if not
then it may be something for you to look into.  On my F14 system I was
actually getting double responses to key presses, rather than no
response, but I wonder if it could still be related.
