Greg, I was not able to get MCE to record or blast to the VIP_1200. The code is too fast.
I did find a code in the HDPVR blaster that is able to make it work.

I am using fedora 14, and only the latest kernel seems to work.
The HDPVR receiver doesn't show repeats, so I still use the MCE to receive.
I run two lircd daemons from this script run from /etc/rc.d/rc.local


# forces lirc_zilog as /dev/lirc0 and mce as /dev/lirc1

rmmod lirc_zilog
rmmod ir_lirc_codec
sleep 2
modprobe lirc_zilog
modprobe ir_lirc_codec

lircd --driver=default --device=/dev/lirc0 --output=/var/run/lirc/lircd1 
lircd --driver=default --device=/dev/lirc1 --output=/var/run/lirc/lircd
