I've got an Antec Fusion V2 chassis with a built in ir receiver.

I've setup lirc on my system, and I can get irrecord to see my remote input and build a config file.

I cannot get irw to work, and subsequently no activity on my HTPC.

I'm running XBMC Live

I've asked two questions on the Live community forum, however it's a slow process and the helpful responses have only taken me so far. These threads include some debug logs and troubleshooting steps.

Question 1
Question 2

I'm wondering if this is something really basic that might simply be missing. The biggest problem here is that Linux changes so fast that information that was valid a year ago is completely obsolete now.

Thanks in advance.
