Yes.  But the part of the circuit I was testing was the IR LED itself
(to make sure it or the solder joints weren't damaged when I shrank the
heat shrink -- apparently the stuff I have requires more heat than most
-- enough to melt solder); I had already tested it with a blue LED (the 
only other one I had on-hand)

It'll be the dual-tuner dish receiver (I forget the number).  Installer 
guy comes tomorrow afternoon.

I have everything ready except for the actual channel change scripts 
(which I have yet to download from 
) -- although I do at some point plan to make an rpm for the lirc-xmit 
changes (Axel finally has some kernel module macros that he hopes will 
work on more than just his system).
