Hello,
I am creating a MythTVbox based on Uuntu 12.04. As a method for changing channels on the Verizon FIOS Mtorola qip7100 receiver I want to use USB IRBlaster. I followed general FAQ's and instructions for this but I am stumbling on what I think is a hardware issue. LIRC is installed and running, conf files are there... Please check following relevant logs - any help in interpreting what is wrong and correcting it is more than welcome:

Command: irsend SEND_ONCE Motorola_QIP6200-2 power
have been issued at the point in the log after FTDI device was recognized...
