I was still able to use the mythmote app to control the frontend but wanted to get my regular remote working.  So, I went to try ir-keytable -t.  As soon as I typed that command and tried a few buttons on the remote, I noticed that the remote was now controlling the frontend again (and everything was reporting correctly in ir-keytable -t).  The remote continued to work for a couple days but now again, the remote has stopped working and there were no obvious changes to the machine.  Maybe it is making some kind of changes on its own but I didn't do anything on that machine other than use the frontend normally.  However, this time, ir-keytable -t still reports the correct values for the all the remote button presses but it didn't start working with the frontend again.
>Any ideas?

What distro are you running?  What sort of remote is it?  Are you
using LIRC with it?  What is the output of "ir-keytable"?
