Do the following and see if it works:

Power off your system (don't just reboot), then unplug power, wait for
20 seconds and plug it back in then start your Ubuntu.

If this works, that means the IR receiver got messed up somehow and
only a complete power cut can reset it. I have seen this happening
tons of times when I tried to get the IR on my HDTV5 RT Gold to work
last summer.
