I know I've read of a few people on this list running this combination,
and I have to assume it works for them, so my question is: how?

I took the opportunity of 0.22 coming out to upgrade the hard drive of
my mythbox, so I fresh installed Fedora 12 and went to town.  The
problem is, I can't seem to get the IR Blaster to control the STB.

lirc_zilog loads fine, and I can get the blaster to flash with certain
raw codes.  However, any code set that looks like it's supposed to work
with this box, gives me errors in /var/log/messages like "failed to get
data for code 0, key 400 -- check lircd.conf entries".

I also tried to use send_power_new from blushingpenguins to see if I
could find *any* codes that would work, but a large number of them give
an error of "must be a valid (lirc_t) number".  A quick run of sed
strips the offending lines, but the remaining codes won't control the

Any other information that would be useful, just let me know and I'll
dig it out.
