Hi... I'm 99% done with my mythbuntu box. I've gotten everything working (including my MCE remote) with the exception of IR Blasting to control my STB. I've followed along with this thread (realizing that I don't have a Hauppage unit, but the procedures are still sound save for the configuration files). I'm using the IRBlaster.info unit. I've verified my Serial port is enabled in the BIOS and confirmed the IRQ and address.
Anyway, my issue is not with the ability of the system's recognition of the serial IR transmitter... I'm able to use irsend to send commands and get no errors back. I've used a camera (that I can confirm sees IR signals with other remotes) and the IR blaster is not emitting any signal. Is it possible for lirc to be configured improperly and irsend to not throw an error? Any help appreciated!
