You should follow the lirc mailing list. There was a bug in the release of
lirc 7.0pre3 that caused the hauppauge remote to not work; this bug has
been fixed in the latest cvs.
If you dont want to build from cvs, axel may be able to rebuild packages
with the fix included, but i would not expect that to happen for a couple

> Has anyone come across this before. I just did a reinstall with Fedora Core 1 and Myth 0.14. Everything seems to work just fine except lirc. When I do a /usr/bin/irw all it does is just sit there waiting for the keypresses but nothing happens. Irxevent does the same thing as well. I've followed Jarod's setup to a T. Checked the batteries so its not that. Also pretty sure of the permissions for /dev/lirc and /dev/lircd. I'm getting a strange error I've never seen before. Here is a printout of /var/log/messages.
