I used one of those for a while, I used a "MyBlaster" device to control
the first (IR) channel and it worked fine. Never tried controlling the
RF side of it.

The MyBlaster is a non-LIRC solution, driven by a serial port (but a USB
-> Serial adapter WILL work, generally they won't with an LIRC type blaster.
