Just to follow up, I can control my receiver with Lirc and jvc_send now.
The problem I had was that I had forgotten that I changed the Remote Address
on my receiver earlier in the year, so the bit patterns within JVC_SEND
wouldn't work. Changed back to Address 1 and it's all good. :)
Too bad I tore apart my IR tx/rx in the process.
Hope that helps.
