Yes, with serial IR transceiver, not hdpvr IR blaster.

Nope, this doesn't sound familiar to me.  The error message is
indicating some problem with your lircd.conf though.  You should
effectively be able to 'cat
/usr/share/lirc/transmitters/dish/general.conf > /etc/lirc/lircd.conf'
(or your config may have an include of that file).  Then 'irsend -d
/dev/lircd SEND_ONCE dish <key>', where you can find values for key in
the config file, 0, 1, 2, ..., select, cancel, etc...  Note your
transmitter may be /dev/lircd1 if the tx lirc modules are loaded after
the rx modules.
