[mythtv-users] Can't seem to get lirc to work in myth

I've recompiled with today's svn, adding --with-lirc in my config
args.  I've made sure I'm using a known-good lircrc file in
~/.mythtv/lircrc, which I also have symlinked to ~/.lircrc.   A grep
for lirc in mythfrontend --version returns true.

I'm using a streamzap remote, using this for lircd.conf and my lircrc
http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/streamzap/PC_Remote
http://mythic.tv/streamzap_lircrc

I can run irw, press buttons and they are returned correctly.  The ok
buttons returns with OK, which would match the button label in my
lircrc, but no button presses are ever recognized within myth.

I installed lirc using:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Install_Lirc_Feisty

I also tried compiling from the current svn for lirc and got he same results.

My desk has several dips in the shape my forehead.  Any advice would
be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Bill Omer
