The blinking red light means that the device is trying to send 
something, probably just not what your STB expects.

In trying to get the USB-UIRT to work with my Dish Network receivers, 
I found that I had to play with the carrier frequency in the 
lircd.conf file. That may just be because the Dish remote uses an 
unusual (56 KHz) frequency, but it wouldn't hurt anything for you to 
try the same.

Add a line like:

   frequency    36000

somewhere in your conf file, before "begin codes". Completely kill 
and restart lircd between changes. Start at 36000 and try going up by 
500 at a time. If you hit 45000 without any luck, then this idea 
probably isn't going to help.
