This is what I have done to fix lirc.. I am not sure why modprobe does not
load it properly sometimes. When I boot, I go to the command line and issue
That fixed the problem for me. It recreated the devices and link them

I'm having a very similar problem. (PVR 150 retail)
Initially, following Jarod Wilson's instruction to the letter, my setup
is working just fine, and the remote works.
/dev/lirc0 exists, and /dev/lirc points to it. There's also /dev/lircd
I can watch live tv, play music, etc ... just fine.
And suddenly, while watching live TV, I go to change the channel... The
remote simply stops responding.
only /dev/lircd is left
trying irw, it simply exits.
mythbackend & mythfrontend don't echo any error messages.
nothing new in /var/log/messages
nothing in modprobe.conf has changed, no software was updated.
reloading the modules or rebooting doesn't solve the problem. the
devices are simply never created ...
