I'm having the same problem, anyone have any idea how to debug this?

I"d have thought that if you"re getting dots in irrecord you"re almost home.
Have you kept pressing buttons until you fill up 2 lines of the sreen? When
you"ve got that far irrecord then asks you to enter a text label for a key
and then press it. It keeps asking you repeatedly until you"ve told it about
all the keys on your remote and then you exit. On exit it creates a conf
file for lircd in the file you specified on the irrecord command line.
Once you have that file you can start the lircd daemon and configure your
.lircrc to assign commands to button presses.
