I am running Mythbuntu 12.04 and having issues with my MCE Remote and IR
I just upgraded from Mythbuntu 11.10, where i had everything in lirc
working perfectly. I understand that certain lirc drivers have been
moved into the kernel, but with my level of linux knowledge I am having
a hard time grasping how this affects lirc and mythtv.
After I upgraded, I copied over all my working lirc config files to the
new installation, and have them set up exactly as they were in Mythbuntu
11.10., with the result that the remote does not function at all and I
am unable to get IR blasting working to control my STB's.
Using irw i get no response when buttons are pressed on remote.
Have tried using irsend to test blasting, but I just get message that
irsend timed out or hardware does not support sending.
Have even uninstalled lirc to see if the remote is supported natively,
and some buttons seem to work, but most annoyingly the OK button does not.
I am at a complete loss here as to how to proceed, there is a mass of
confusing information out there when i google the issue, that just makes
my head spin.
Below are my hardware.conf and lircd.conf files, hopefully someone can
point me in the right direction or explain the changes to lirc that have

#Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration
#If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application
#that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive
#frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER
#It will then populate all other variables without any user input
#If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure
#to leave this set to "false"
