mode2 does not apply to your hardware. mode2 is for
hardware that processes raw IR signal data.
Your hardware pre-processes the IR signal then sends a
few bytes over the serial port, at 1200 baud, see
daemons/hw_logitech.c. hw_logitech.c also has some debug
logging which can be turned on that might be helpful.
You need to compile it in, then use an option for lircd(-D1).
Also using -n turns off daemon mode, so you get the logging
right on the console.
Also, try to determine if the com-port is getting data.
You can check /proc/interrupts. If you see
interrupts for the com-port when you press your remote
buttons, this indicates characters coming in.
Make sure you picked the right com-port, or verify
the com-port works some other way.
