Few things to make sure you've checked.
1) Is your lircrc file saved as ~mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc? note there's no . before the lircrc
contrary to lirc convention.
2) Did you edit the lircrc for mythtv if you were using it previously with irxevent? It should be
prog = mythtv
repeat = 2
button = vol-
config = bracketleft
With a value of mythtv for the prog entry, otherwise the event won't be sent to mythtv. The config line
is also different, it isn't "Key x windowName" unlike for irxevent.
3) Is your mythtv compiled with native lirc support? it's a configure option. It probably is but apart
from getting the sources and checking debian/rules for the included configure options I don't
know how you can tell. If you've a decent connection I'd "apt-get source mythtvPackageName". Then look at the
source and search the debian/rules for the configure line, just to make sure it's compiled with lirc support.
I got no feedback about lirc from mythfrontend when I was trying to get the native support working.
Perhaps if I'd run it with -verbose all I would have.
best of luck
