I've put some logging in the channel change script so it is getting called.  I've tried putting a delay in the script and also sending the command twice within the same script but it has not improved the reliability.  some times it will pickup just the first digit and sometimes just the last.

Try adding 'min_repeat X', where X is something in the 2-5 range,
to the blasting remote stanza in lircd.conf, bounce lircd and see
if it behaves any better.
