I have tried that, but I cannot get that card to go into the slot unless I cut 
pieces off the case.  I am probably going to remove the otherboard from the 
case, but I need a few ours free to do that, and I have just been putting it 
off.  I'll get back to you when I can.  Meanwhile, is there any way to debug the 
loading of these programs? i.e. /usr/local/sbin/lircd and 
/usr/local/bin/lirexec -d /home/mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc

If you are sure it is not a LIRC config issue, can you test the card
in the PCI slot directly with the case open, instead of using the
