Are you able to share the contents of:
/usr/share/lirc/client.conf/flashplayer.rc or just /usr/share/lirc directory in general?
There are some references to lirc here:
chumby-29-53-95:/usr/chumby/scripts # ls -l configure_remote.xml
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 809 Jul 6 14:27 configure_remote.xml
it appears that the flashplayer used may already support acting as a LIRC client (since the client.conf is called flashplayer.rc). is this true?
thanks much for your help.
