The device came with my haupauge PVR-150 it is a little white rectangle
and it says SMK on the bottom. It has two audio-input-looking ports labeled
1 and 2. I plug my diode into number 1. nothing blinks with an irsend
command. Even with a SEND_START. The lircd log registers the irsend.
One note, is that this usb IR device picks up every IR signal and blinks
red. And, of course, if lirc doesnt have a config for the signal it
receives it discards the signal. For instance I can pick up any
non-configured remote and aim it at the usb white box and it will blink.
So when I issue the irsend I would expect that if I have it some near the
reciever, the receiver should blink as well.
The device works fine with the mceusb2 driver for receiving
