I had this remote working on an old box and I moved it to a new box. Without paying attention the first time I setup the remote as a mceusb and it did not work the second go around I went over my old notes and remembered that it was a mceusb2. Either way no matter which module I use when I run irw it kills lircd. Below is what the log file shows.

I run lircd and the log file shows
Jun 25 23:12:38 mythtv lircd: lircd(mceusb2) ready

Then I run irw and the log file shows
Jun 25 23:13:29 mythtv lircd: accepted new client on /dev/lircd
Jun 25 23:13:29 mythtv lircd: could not get file information for /dev/lirc
Jun 25 23:13:29 mythtv lircd: default_init(): No such file or directory
Jun 25 23:13:29 mythtv lircd: caught signa

And the lircd process is no longer running. I am sure this isn't that hard to fix but I couldn't find anything googling or on the  FAQ. Thanks for any help
