[jimmy at linuxhome ~]$ irsend SEND_ONCE blaster 2
gives nothing. Its supposed to change the stb channel to 2?

I do have the stuff for happauge remote and the stb remote in one 
lircd.conf file. See attached file. I have also attached the channel 
change script. I have
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c in /etc/modprobe.conf

I have the IR blaster connected to the pvr card (in direct line-of-sight 
to stb). I have to get the happauge remote working first?

[jimmy at linuxhome ~]$ sudo modprobe lirc_zilog
[sudo] password for jimmy:
WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files 
belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/lirc, it will be 
ignored in a future release.

The modules are not loading properly I guess or I dont have the proper 
files at the proper place. What is the right way to do it?
