[mythtv-users] Remote control setup problem

I bought a USB IR receiver/remote here:
You can see the picture of it there.
Under Mythdora, a couple of buttons works. I want to configure it to work
with the rest of the buttons.
1) >irrecord /dev/lircd /home/mythtv/myfile (running as root), I got:
irrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check permissions)
2) I can't stop the lircd:
I got a failed message. Also failed when shutting down the computer.
killproc lircd fails. Could be killproc is not available? (man killproc not found)
I write a little C program, and all it does is read in a character, and then prints
out the ASCII in hex. I was able to read a majority of the buttons. Strange that some
buttons give me a same code. Some buttons give me a bunch of characters (such as up button
would give me 1B 5B 41). The fast forward and fast reverse give me 2 and 6 which is the
same as next, previous button respectively.
Anyway, it's best if I can get these two problem resolved. It appears that it's almost there
, just something a bit off.
