I recently completed upgrading my mythtv box the hard way. I first
upgraded my Mythbuntu 8.04 LTS to 9.04 and then upgraded 9.10.
Somewhere along I ended up with Mythbuntu 9.10 including MythTV .22.
But my remote control (mceusb connected to my HVR1600 card) did not
function. The channel change script that I used successfully in 8.04 ran
and I was able to change channels on my Satellite receiver via the
HVR1600 Blaster in my new install/upgrade. Also "irw" brought up a
window but nothing in response to key presses. The files associated
with lirc were unchanged from my working mythbuntu 8.04/.21 and
But pressing buttons on the remote control was fruitless. For me, this
is what fixed the problem.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc
In dpkg-reconfigure curses (text) window, I selected Windows Media
Transceivers and then Windows Media Center Dish reflecting that my
remote and blaster that came with the HVR1600 card were M$ clones.
Your selection of remote and blaster may be different.
If you are installing the HVR1600 card, my experience my be helpful.
