I got it working with driver 0.8.5. I just have two questions.
1. Is there a way to change the sensitivity of the pad keys. They are slow
to respond in irw, especially the left and down pad keys
2. If I reboot my system and run irw, the system returns 'no such file or
directory'. I then run sudo lircd and it will allow me to run irw. But,
once I run irw, it no longer acknowledges commands from the remote. Do you
know why the system is losing its lircd configuration when I reboot? Is
there a way to prevent this from happening?
I'm happy to report that I got it working with lirc-0.8.5 (21May09) Release.
I have the same issue with the buttons being soft and require extra presses
to get a response.
I'll investigate how to adjust the sensitivity. I'm glad that I was finally
able to resolve this. Brakemeier, thanks for all your help. I had to
reread your messages to understand exactly the steps to follow to get it
