Hello there! I'm having issues for a long time with my Philips SRM 5100 and my XBMC live. The problem is that every time I boot the machine, lirc does not recognize my device. I need to run sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc and select MCERemote again. This is really kind annoying. Since the script is TCL/TK based I don't know how to automate this using init.d scripts.

Also, it seems that I loose my configuration for custom keys every time.

Is it possible to fix this? I mean, is it possible to automate what the dpkg-reconfigure lirc script does?
