ok, so i have the iguanaIR receiving and transmitting though it isn't
hugely reliable at either.  i'm attaching my ubuntu config files so
that if anyone needs it, they can use it.  (ben, i'm looking at you

also, if anyone can have a look at the config and tell me if there is
anything that i can add to make it more reliable, that would be great.
 perhaps a pause or a speed parameter or something as the channel
changing is only about 50% reliable.  also, the receiving has a number
of repeats for each button press.
