Just reread your post, and something else occurred to me.

Do you have your lircd.conf configured properly with the codes you want 
to send? Essentially you should have two remote definitions, one for the 
receiver and one for the blaster. You then use the correct blaster codes 
by  passing the remote name to irsend. Hope I am helping and not stating 
the obvious.

Feel free to post your lircd.conf and your channel change script if you 
like, and I will compare to mine....
