Some more information.

When I try irrecord, I get

irrecord: could not open /dev/lirc0
irrecord: default_init(): Device or resource busy
irrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check
permissions)


I assumed I could get keystrokes when I ran this to make sure the
receiver is seeing the remote.  I get this whether I have the lirc
service running or not.

Also, I am now getting these errors in /var/log/message when I run irw:
