Well, I got my gf to press some buttons on the remote, but I don't see anything in /var/log/lircd to suggest anything happened.

However, I did get irsend to work, which I have never been able to do before, so progress has been made.

I'm going to try to get irsend to control my newly installed Sky box. This may save me 50 if it works. That's how much a USB sky box controller from these guys costs  http://www.dusky-control.com/

Hi.

I am now even more confused! I've never heard of UIR mode. I will try what you suggest, you should know how it works, after all.

I thought the config file for the mce remote would also require you to use the associated mce receiver, which I don't have.

I'm at work at the moment, I have ssh access to my box, so I can try different config files, but I have difficulty pressing remote buttons from here to test if it works!

I could mail my gf at home to try pressing some buttons.

Fingers crossed!!

The suggestion is:
Use the --force option or just use the existing config file for your
remote from lirc.org.
You probably used the USB-UIRT in UIR mode which requires a different
type of config file.
A MCE remote is nothing I would call random:
