I'm in Canada, but I happen to know that the USB-UIRT is connected to
the USB port. It does not interact with any Hauppauge TV card. You
should start by setting up the Hauppauge TV card and make it work. Then
setup the USB-UIRT.

Here's a summary of how I made the USB-UIRT work on MythDora:
I had some troubles setting up the IR Blaster (USB-UIRT), but after a
couple hours, I had it working. Here's a summary of how I did it:

ln /usr/sbin/lircd /usr/sbin/irblaster
cp /etc/init.d/lircd /etc/init.d/irblaster
wget http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/coolsat/Pro_4000 -O

In /etc/init.d/irblaster, replace every instance of "lircd" by
"irblaster". Then put this into /etc/sysconfig/irblaster:

IRBLASTER_OPTIONS=" --driver=usb_uirt_raw --device=/dev/ttyUSB0
--output=/dev/lircd1 --listen=8766 --pidfile=/var/run/irblaster.pid

Then put the following into /usr/local/bin/change_chan.sh:

for digit in $(echo $1 | sed -e 's/./& /g'); do
 irsend --device=/dev/lircd1 SEND_ONCE $REMOTE_NAME $digit
 sleep 0.333
irsend --device=/dev/lircd1 SEND_ONCE $REMOTE_NAME O

I'm not sure why (and this is what gave me so much troubles), but I need
to read from /dev/lircd1 for the irblaster to work. So I added irw
/dev/lircd1 >/dev/null 2>&1 & in /etc/rc.d/rc.local. It's not very
elegant, but it works...

Hope this helps,
Guillaume Filion
