I just built a new mythbuntu backend running Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS 64 bit and MythTV 0.24+fixes. I have a frontend running on the machine for testing purposes.

On this machine, I am unable to get any response from the MCE Remote.

After searching this forum and other sources, I tried the solution discussed in the following thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1597886&page=1. This solution did not work on the new backend. I get no response from testing using an irw command. It does, however, work on another PC running the 32 bit version of the same OS/kernel version.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to how to get the remote working. My preference is to stay on the LTS version, if at all possible.

Here is detailed information about the problem setup.

Thanks for your help.
