I am being seriously dumb here but please someone just put me out of my 

I have a working Mythtv setup on a Pundit-R (FC3 using Jarod's guide PVR-350 
connected to SKY Grundig digibox)

I bought a red_eye remote to allow channel changing on the SKy digibox and 
donwloaded the linux driver, but this has never worked.

I run the command 
[mythtv at Showcase Softlib]$ ./red_eye /dev/ttyS0 1004 2
Opening port for /dev/ttyS0 and setting RTS
RTS bit set ok
Writing data ("1004") now
write() of  bytes failed!
Data Written....
Sleeping for 2 seconds ....
.. Start close... Finished

What am I doing wrong here?

oh and ttyS1 gives the same.
