I have this in my startup script:
/usr/local/irtrans/irserver -start_clock -daemon -logfile /var/log/
irserver.log -pidfile /var/run/irserver.pid /dev/ttyUSB0
Relevant section from /etc/LCDd.conf:
# Server section with all kinds of settings for the LCDd server
# Tells the server to load the given drivers. Multiple lines can be
# NOTE: You may activate several input (input only) drivers but only
# driver, which should be the first.
# Tells the driver to bind to the given interface
# Listen on this specified port; defaults to 13666.
I'm assuming you turned on LCD Display in MythFrontend.
I killed my mythlcdserver and ran it from a shell so I could see what
it was doing. At the same time, I ran frontend from a shell so I could
see what it was doing with the LCD stuff. Check your logs and see what
they tell you.
