Finally found some time to do some testing with this.
I ran evtest and found the remote is not producing any extra key presses, it
functions as you would expect. So I then tried running irw from the lirc
package again and found it to be working as expected, which I couldn't
understand. Then I loaded up mythtv and tried using the remote to navigate
around the menus - with very annoying behaviour, the menus would jump around
unexpectedly as though an extra key on the remote had been pressed. Back to
irw and the output shows extra key presses as I posted previously. It turns
out that when I have mythbackend loaded I get extra key presses generated
through lirc. Thoughout I can run evtest and it shows the remote is working
fine. There is some sort of interaction between mythbackend and lirc causing
the extra key presses. It would be nice to know if this is happening to
anyone else - I have lirc 0.7.2 and mythtv svn revision 7645.
