Have you got an appropriate channel change script assigned to the
video source (in mythtvsetup) and valid channel numbers in the freqid
field for _all_ channels on the IR blaster-controlled input? If your
channel change script offers logging, ensure that it is not the case
that it is being called successfully on channel changes but is failing

(You'll also need to restart the backend after any changes like this.)
