I've also noticed that not overclocking seems to make it work on boot more often than not. All a little strange Smile

I think it's likely to be an OpenElec issue mostly, but currently the OE devs don't seem that concerned about fixing it.

And I have a separate issue too that when I have TVHeadend enabled with a USB TV device - the IR remote becomes very erratic and misses most of the presses, which makes it all very nearly unworkable. This was not a problem with early Gotham builds nor Frodo, so again something that needs to be fixed.

It's not an OE issue it's the lirc_rpi kernel module, check dmesg when it happens and you should see some debugging messages about lirc_rpi. I believe the lirc_rpi module code needs some messaging to make it more compatible with newer kernel revisions.

dmesg shows nothing unusual here:

OpenELEC:~ # dmesg | grep lirc
[   13.483060] lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, major 249
[   13.499543] lirc_rpi: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned.
[   14.402997] lirc_rpi: auto-detected active low receiver on GPIO pin 18
[   14.403470] lirc_rpi lirc_rpi.0: lirc_dev: driver lirc_rpi registered at minor = 0
[   14.403485] lirc_rpi: driver registered!
[   14.543427] input: lircd as /devices/virtual/input/input2
