Hi Greg,

Did you figure this one out?  I have a brand new dvico ir reciever that states itself has major 180,96 out of the box.

My lirc is compiled with dvico only supported.

At least your lircd configuration has changed to use the "default"  
driver instead of the "dvico", which you need.
Check where lircd is started on your system and which driver parameter  
is passed to lircd.
