MCE USB irda issues

So I have a HP Media Center Edition remote and usb irda receiver. I have the relevant lirc packages installed and /usr/bin/irw finally launches without dying immediately.

Upon pressing buttons on the remote after running "irw", nothing is posting on the screen. From what I've read it should show commands on the terminal window corresponding to what I've pressed on the remote. I'm assuming I don't have a valid /etc/lircd.conf file.

Anyone have any knowledge on getting these configured? I'm running Fedora 7 with a "yum update" just run yesterday. Also, the lircd daemon is running as well. Otherwise /usr/bin/irw wouldn't have run. Thanks guys
