There were some things broken, so I re-installed lirc (with --purge),
did your lirc-make-devinput and now I am at the point where I can see
the events of my remote via irw (again). But mapping this to kodi (or
vdr) still fails.

Because I did not find out how (and with wich lib) kodi connects to lirc
I need some time to investigate. Please stand by - I will give you more
information if I find out the problem from my point of view.
