I see. I have not tried this. I assume you used the suggest lircd.conf 
file? Aside from generating a good pattern I assume you verified the 
signal quality on the wire. You can also go below irw using mode2 to see 
what is coming in raw to lircd.

However, and I know this isn't what you are asking, but rather than 
going this route I would consider simply getting a Veris Basic receiver. 
They are about US$30 and aside from receiving the IR codes they have the 
added benefit of being able to power up the system when it is off. Very 
nice when you put the case in the closet as one of mine is. You then 
tell the Harmony to emulate say the iMon RM200 (or any other iMon you wish).

Since you are on Knoppmyth/LinHes, the how-to is at: 
If you are still on R5.5 then there is a link to that how-to from the 
above how-to.
