I tried using MyBlaster instead of Lirc, but the script throws an error 
when configuring USB.  From searching, it used to work, but broke on an 
upgrade (not sure which).  Now, it fails on this line:

, error message is:
getattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device

I'm not a Perl programmer; any suggestions on how to fix?
