When I start the Infrared app in mythbuntu-control-centre I can see where
I choose the type of remote (from the drop down list under "Enable a Remote
Control", but where do you pick what type of receiver you have? Is it the
radio button labelled "USB & Serial Remote support via LIRC"?

I've done all this and restarted the lirc daemon and see this in
Nov 21 23:27:55 mfe1 lircd-0.9.0[5284]: lircd(default) ready, using
Nov 21 23:27:57 mfe1 lircd-0.9.0[5284]: accepted new client on

But when I run irw and press buttons on the Harmony remote, I see nothing.
Ditto for when I run irrecord or mode2 (after stopping lirc).
