OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2
I'm sure this must a simple problem to fix but I just can't seem to figure it out...

I have a RasPi with a GPIO ir receiver that works "out of the box" (using my own settings of course) with all of the latest Rbej Gotham builds. However, if I try any of the official dev builds (from link and link) or the Chris Swan builds (from link) or the MilhouseVH build (OpenELEC_Gotham-RPi.arm-devel-20131118204706-r16388.tar) the remote does not work.

I've tried the usual checks and tests - lirc_rpi driver is registered on all builds and "mode2 -d /dev/lirc0" gives key press responses for all builds. However, "irw /var/run/lirc/lircd-lirc0" shows key presses for the Rbej builds but not for any of the others (they show connection refused with this command). From my understanding this means that the lirc module has not been loaded(*) and/or my lircd.conf file is not being "read" by any of the non-Rbej builds.

This must be a problem with my settings or otherwise there would be a lot more people questioning this. But, can anyone tell me if there is a difference in the operation of the lirc driver between the Rbej and the other builds?

To add: I've just checked "cat /proc/bus/input/devices" in the logs and it does not show any output for the non-Rbej builds - I'm sure this is the problem but how to fix it, I have no idea.

(*) lsmod output:
Non-Rbej builds:

cfg80211 177211 0
lirc_rpi 5880 0
lirc_dev 7765 1 lirc_rpi

Rbej builds:

ip_tables 9543 1 iptable_filter
lirc_rpi 5872 3
lirc_dev 7709 1 lirc_rpi
r8712u 162533 0

In addition, I've changed over to boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 from boot=/dev/sda1 to ensure all the files are updated to their correct locations but still no difference.
