I have been trying for two weeks to get my mce vista vrc-1100 remote to work with mythtv and vlc on Mint 12. Won't go into all I have done, but the biggest problem I am having is that a No Access sign pops up whenever I press the Play, Pause and Rewind buttons on the remote. In one test I removed lirc entirely and still had the problem, so it seems to be an evdev issue.

I would greatly appreciate if someone has a working solution they would like to share
