As mentioned back in this thread (I think),  building a simple IR
transmitter (found at http://www.lirc.org/transmitters.html) and
modifying LIRC to co-exist with your existing receiver (Hauppauge
WinTV PVR 350 in my case) works just fine to control
Expressvu/Dish_Network receivers.  Check the list, there was a recent
post on different "remote id" requirements for different receivers. 
In my case, a 3100 (dp.301 in the US) needs id #9.

Excellent guide on modifying the source http://members.cox.net/rwraithr

My apologies if this isn't the most current link.  Seem to remember
there being a post recently that had the source modified already. 
Using since Mar-2004 without a single change-change miss.
