you configured in .lircrc.Some of them were named that way though... from looking at examples, the KEY_ part is not required, right? Some of the others were from the standard Hauppage /etc/lirc/lircd.conf

Right, this works, but the same as with inputlirc: irw responds to button presses on the remote (the values of "button" in .lircrc are based on these), but irexec and ircat don't. I've changed the .lircrc to the following, but the result is the same. Nothing for any buttons, even the ones listed.
Start lircd with the config file found at:
and adjust your .lircrc.OK, will have a look at that.
