Yes, everything is defined correctly because I am using the same
lircd.conf that I was using with my serial IR blaster.
I used the xmode2 program to compare IR signals from the actual remote
with the signal from the blaster and they are a little bit different.
I am going to try to change my lircd.conf a bit more in hopes I can get
it to work.
