Hi there, I've got an HA-IR01SV that isn't working.

I've done the device changes and dkmsing and so on and so forth as detailed in other threads. With debug on, xbmc sees the commands coming from the remote, and just doesn't do anything with them:

system summary says xbmc 10.1 git:unknown compiled mar 9 2011. aspire revo 3700. what other information can I provide? Any thoughts?
Just last night I figured out Lirc with XBMC here are some of my findings that may affect you.

1) You have to start the lirc service not just run the lircd. Either have it run at boot normally or run "sudo service lirc start"

2) That has to be done before XBMC starts for it to see it. If you are running Live for testing you can stop then start xbmc-live after the lirc service is running or just do that before starting XBMC under a normal Linux distro.

That should be enough
