I am generally ok with getting irserver and lcdd to work, with the exception of some buttons not working reliably or at all on the remote (e.g. guide, menu).  But I assume that I will be able to get that to work at some point.
 
My main issue is having irserver play nice with my USB-UIRT to transmit to my dish stb.  I am able to get them each  (irserver or USB-UIRT) working separately but not together.  I had a glimmer of hope once I added the argument [output to /dev/lircd1] in my hardware.conf, as I no longer got the error messages in the logs, although nothing was being actually transmitted.  I figured that all I needed to square things was to restart my machine , but unfortunately, the minute I did that, it all went back to square one, only lircd is being created and it's being used by irserver.
 
I have used both the uirt2_raw and usb_uirt_raw drivers in my hardware.conf  to try to get things to work, with not much luck with either.
 
So if anyone is willing to provide assistance on that, it would truly be appreciated.
 
Thanks

I forgot, it's been a year or so since I last configured the irserver,
you don't need lirc you just need a lircrc as the irserver has a lircd
built in. I has a webserver too but I can't get this to work.

This is how it is started

The LCD display is started with:

You need irtrans LCDd driver.

BTW I would only recommend the Origenae x11 to complete masochists
unless they have changed their design. Having to plug the USB and
IEEE-1394 connectors pin by pin was a *real* pain. Even changing their
noisy fans for quieter ones was a nightmare. This list goes on...

It does have some plus points the hard disk mounting is cleaver, the
irtrans, optional extra, works well. It does look more like a piece of
hi-fi than a computer. When you've got the right components it is quiet.

But I would never buy an Origen case again.
