I suppose a better response is 'why do you need to blacklist lirc_imon
to get lirc to work?

The display only driver is probably not what you're looking for.

I think you need to make sure lirc is using the mce driver which
shouldn't have any problems with the lirc_imon being loaded.

I was trying to leave time for Jarod to jump in and say something.

I had one of the iMon devices but I've retired it since the VFD kept
freezing up on me.

What does your /etc/lirc/hardware.conf look like?
