[vdr] Problem with Remote Wonder and VDR :(

I have built and installed LIRC with the configure switch for the AT Usb device.

I have /dev/lircd and /dev/lirc0 - permissions are correct.

I have a lircd.conf which is setup correctly for my remote control.

lircd would not run because /dev/lirc did not exist so I just created a symlink to lirc0 which works fine.

I can execute lircd fine.

irw executes as well and catches all the remote control presses so the remote control is working fine.

I am using VDR 1.3.38 which I made with make REMOTE=LIRC NO_KBG=1

I then startup VDR and it wants to setup the RC unit... it does not recognise any button presses.

/var/log/syslog is still saying setting up KBD ???

Jan 17 02:36:18 localhost vdr[6413]: remote control KBD - learning keys
Jan 17 02:36:18 localhost vdr[6413]: KBD remote control thread started (pid=6413, tid=6422)

I forced --lirc=/dev/lircd --no-kbd onto the command when I execute vdr.

syslog now says

Jan 17 02:24:57 localhost vdr[6367]: remote control LIRC - learning keys
Jan 17 02:24:57 localhost vdr[6367]: LIRC remote control thread started (pid=6367, tid=6376)

No other messages in the log but still not doing anything when I hit keys on the remote :(

any ideas folks??
