    need help with irblaster

    hi i have have been working on setting up a mythbuntu 10.10 media center for my house and am having a problem with the ir blaster i have. i got it from irblaster.info and it is a serail. the problem i am having is getting lirc setup with the info for it. i have been going off of http://regx.dgswa.com/html/node/134 and it has been going great except i cant get the system to send any code. i jsut keep getting this error "
    rob@media-center:~$ irsend SEND_ONCE DC50X 1
    irsend: command failed: SEND_ONCE DC50X 1
    irsend: hardware does not support sending
    "

    i have for my cable box a pace DC50X and am jsut confused on what the problem is. my hardware is as follows
    amd phenom 2 x4 945 cpu
    4gb ram
    gigabyte ga-870a-ud3 mobo
    9400gt video card
    and a hauppauge winttv-hvr-1600
    firefly rf remote


    everything is running great in mythtv but i cant get the ir blaster to control the box. it isnt even sending a ir signal for some reason. my lirc config is as follows



    #the Ubuntu LIRC package maintainer scripts.
    #
    #It includes the default configuration for the remote and/or
    #transmitter that you have selected during package installation.
    #
    #Feel free to add any custom remotes to the configuration
    #via additional include directives or below the existing
    #Ubuntu include directives from your selected remote and/or
    #transmitter.

    #Configuration for the ATI/NVidia/X10 RF Remote (userspace) remote:
    #include "/usr/share/lirc/remotes/atiusb/lircd.conf.atilibusb"

    #Configuration for the Microsoft Windows Media Center V2 (usb) : Motorola Cable$
    include "/usr/share/lirc/extras/transmitters/pace/pace.conf"



    and the pace.conf file is

    You say the transmitter is serial? In mythbuntu control center, can you select a serial transmitter in combination with your cable box? Then maybe that will prepare lirc_serial for you as they discuss in the link you provided in your post. Good luck!
