After some recent upgraded in my Mythbuntu the MCE remote which has been
working great until now is not working quite right. I have seen lots of
discussion surrounding the issue of moving mce driver to kernel from
lirc starting 2.6.36. I think that is what is causing the issue. But
funny thing is I started with fresh Mythbuntu 11.04 which already had
Here are my problems.

1. Each key press is counted as two-three times.

2. OK key button is not working anylonger. This maybe because my remote
is now getting identified as "vista_mce" instead of "mceusb" before.

IRW test shows keys being depressed correctly except for the OK button.
Any idea on how I can fix the keymapping? Or do I need to change the
profile? BTW usually clicking on right key does work as OK if there is
no more item to display on right button press.


Mythbuntu 11.04
MythTV 2.0.24
Lirc 0.8.7
