    IRSEND hardware does not support sending

    Hello
    I am trying with no luck to get my blaster to work, I keep getting this error message "hardware does not support sending"

    Mythbuntu 10.10 - 0.24 and PVR150 (SMK Manufacturing, Inc. eHome Infrared Receiver)

    The remote works fine, I get data back from IRW.

    Code:
    # /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
    #
    #Chosen Remote Control
    REMOTE="Windows Media Center Transceivers/Remotes (all)"
    REMOTE_MODULES="lirc_dev mceusb"
    REMOTE_DRIVER=""
    REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/lirc0"
    REMOTE_SOCKET=""
    REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF="mceusb/lircd.conf.mceusb"
    REMOTE_LIRCD_ARGS=""
    
    #Chosen IR Transmitter
    TRANSMITTER="Microsoft Windows Media Center V2 (usb) : Direct TV Receiver"
    TRANSMITTER_MODULES="lirc_dev mceusb"
    TRANSMITTER_DRIVER=""
    TRANSMITTER_DEVICE=""
    TRANSMITTER_SOCKET=""
    TRANSMITTER_LIRCD_CONF="directtv/general.conf"
    TRANSMITTER_LIRCD_ARGS=""
    
    #Enable lircd
    START_LIRCD="true"
    
    #Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
    #START_LIRCMD="false"
    
    #Try to load appropriate kernel modules
    LOAD_MODULES="true"
    
    # Default configuration files for your hardware if any
    LIRCMD_CONF=""
    
    #Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration
    #If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application
    #that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive
    #frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER
    #It will then populate all other variables without any user input
    #If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure
    #to leave this set to "false"
    FORCE_NONINTERACTIVE_RECONFIGURATION="false"
    START_LIRCMD=""
    I have tried commenting out the transmitter section, I have also removed everything in it.

    I know this is some sort of driver issue but I don't know how to solve it.

    Code:
    andrew@DVRBOX:~$ ls /dev/lirc*
    /dev/lircd
    andrew@DVRBOX:~
    $

    This is the last bit that I need to get my rig working
