I think I figured this out. The X10 mp3anywhere doesn't need a
kernel module lirc_serial
From this webpage on lirc.org. http://www.lirc.org/html/table.html
Either reboot or remove the lirc_serial and set the uart back to a 16550
setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart 16550
Then, since you already have a good lircd.conf for your remote, you
shouldn't need to record.
Edit the file /etc/sysconfig/lirc to tell the lirc daemon how to run.
The options you need to change are
driver = mp3anywhere
device = /dev/ttyS0
reload lircd and then hopefully then something will show up with irw
If you need to record, you could do it like this
irrecord -d /dev/ttyS0 -H mp3anywhere <remote name>
the following is my /etc/sysconfig/lirc file in case you don't have one.
# Note: in addition to these parameters, you need to have working -*-
# configuration file for lircd (and lircmd if enabled).
# Options to lircd(8). Typically, this will be empty, as which driver
# should be specified using the LIRC_DRIVER variable below.
# The infrared receiver (and/or transmitter) driver to be used by lircd(8),
# similar to passing "-H driver" to lircd(8).
# Run "/usr/sbin/lircd -H help" to get a listing of supported drivers.
# Which lirc device will be used by lircd(8).
# This is the same as passing "-d device" to lircd.
# An empty value will use the default /dev/lirc device.
# If "yes", the init script will try to start lircmd(8) too.
# Options to lircmd(8).
