Does anyone know why LIRC in Gotham works with the addon but not if you put the same code in autostart.sh only?
I'm sure someone closer to Gotham development can provide a better answer, but keep in mind Gotham is a big change to the XBMC system and is still under development. Also Raspberry Pi's are just one of the many hardware platforms and GPIO Lirc users are an even smaller subset of that.
I have a feeling once Gotham reaches RC there will be a baked in Lirc solution if there is enough activity to justify it.
Just want to add to this I have been trying for weeks to get a Xbox 360 remote (black newer version) to work with OpenELEC XBMC and the suppress repeats trick that everything points to was not working. Eventually what I found/tried stopped it. I changed the flags in the lircd.conf file from CONST_LENGTH to NO_FOOT_REP So far as I can tell it has fixed my issue but as for any further use repercussions I have not come across any yet. My setup is with a custom wired IR receiver on the raspberry pi.
