Thanks for the help - it worked!
For the record: I'm now using latest version of lirc (version 0.7.1
with built-in support for the DVICO remote - no patches required) and
I downloaded Chris Pascoe's lircrc file
copied it to /home/mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc (as you suggested). Jani's
lircrc is configured for irxevent so this doesn't work.
Now all I need to do is sort out some channel setup issues and I'm away!
Thanks again for the help.
