Hmm I'm not sure about this because I can't remember if irw was working 
okay for me... It is possible that your remote isn't in /etc/rc_keymaps/ 
or that it is incomplete. Reviewing the link below, it's also clear that 
lircd must use the devinput driver - I'm not sure which one you're using 
at present. Do check and try the things I've suggested. All is not lost 
if your remote isn't in rc_keymaps, although you'll have significantly 
more work to do, as you'll need to create a custom file.
I worked things out after reading through this thread:


If you persevere you should find your answers there.

Good luck,
