Hi all.

You may remember my struggle upgrading from lirc 0.7.1 to 0.8.1

I now have 0.8.1 working with a USB-UIRT and an HP MCE remote. However it does not work very well. I have to wave the remote about with a button pressed to get lirc to receive a code. When I was using 0.7.1 I was in UIR mode, and lirc received codes very well, usually on the first button press.

What is likely to be wrong here? I suspect it is because I am no longer using UIR mode.It's not the batteries, because I have just replaced them with brand new Duracells.

To clarify, the USB-UIRT flashes, indicating that it is receiving something, but lirc fails to decode it 90% of the time.

TIA for any help.
