    Hopefully the maintainers of the driver are watching this and will fix this problem for the rest of us, but for those of you who are unaware:

    By default the IR port on the Live!Drive is OFF!

    While spending most of this morning troubleshooting Lirc's setup and checking the net for info, including Lirc's site and docs, I come to find that my problem is not with Lirc it is with the emu10k1 driver and the fact the somebody thought that there was a good reason to have the IR port off by default. Futhermore, the information is not readily available, thus people are going to think that the problem is with Lirc/IRMan.

    To fix this make sure you add:
    options snd-emu10k1 enable_ir=1

    - or -

    which ever one you have (follow notes in the file if you have modprobe.conf and it is Gentoo)
