i highly doubt that the problem is really the clock rate. i've
run lirc using home-built serial receivers for about 10 years
now, and your 233Mhz is definitely faster than the first
machine(s) i ran it on.
that being said, i don't have much good advice on
troubleshooting. make sure the port is configured correctly, of
course. if you have access to an oscilloscope, look at the
signal from your receiver. at least use xmode2 to see if there
are odd patterns to the data that might suggest hardware
