[mythtv-users] mythbuntu 9.10 lirc irblaster serial homebrew hardware.conf

I've been trying for a long time now to get my serial blaster to work.
Stepping down a bit, I now try to get mu serial receiver to work instead,
since it seems more of a standard case.
So I got so far (after finding that my serial ports were disabled in
BIOS) that I
* get a /dev/lirc0 after modprobe of lirc_serial
* mode2 actually seems to work,
I get pulse foo and space bar when I press the remote.
So far so good.
I now try to use irrecord, and this is where I get out of luck.
it does not notice my pressing on the remote
I believe that irecord is dependant on lircd running,
so I think I got the config for lircd wrong.
I'm using a lirc from the mythbubto 9.10 repos, 0.8.6,
and a hardwar.conf found on the net.
The installation does not give me a default one, which seems a bit odd to me...
bnl at ibm:/etc/lirc$ cat hardware.conf
#Chosen IR Transmitter
# Arguments which will be used when launching lircd
#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
# Run "lircd --driver=help" for a list of supported drivers.
# If DEVICE is set to /dev/lirc and devfs is in use /dev/lirc/0 will be
# automatically used instead
# Default configuration files for your hardware if any
bnl at ibm:/etc/lirc$ ls /dev/lir*
bnl at ibm:/etc/lirc$ ls -la /dev/lir*

Any pointers to how to continue.
Or can someone post a working hardware.conf, using a serial receiver
on some kind of ubuntu?
