So this could well be the driver at fault. The Ubuntu 10.10 kernels

I think I have done more harm than good so I apt-get removed /purge LIRC and then re-installed via Synpatic. I don't get anything back when I IRW and I think it is a driver issue.
shipped with a somewhat early mceusb driver that wasn't perfect, and
has since been fixed upstream, but no updates have been pulled into
the Ubuntu kernels. You have a few choices here... One is to find a
ppa with newer kernels (or use the 11.04 beta kernel maybe). Another
is to build out-of-tree device drivers using the v4l/dvb media_tree.
And yet another is to try a different distro. There are probably a
few other options as well.
