I am running Ubuntu 12.04 with Lirc 0.9.0.  I have copied the remote configuration file to /etc/lirc, which being recognized…

$ irsend LIST "" ""

irsend: Motorola_VIP_1200

 

However, when send a signal to my STB, the blaster blinks, the channel changes, then I get a timeout message.

$ irsend SEND_ONCE Motorola_VIP_1200 ONE

irsend: timeout

 

This is the lirc.conf file I am using…

http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/motorola/VIP_1200

 

Here is my hardware.conf file…

 

# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf

#

#START_LIRCMD="false"

 

#Try to load appropriate kernel modules

LOAD_MODULES="true"

 

# Default configuration files for your hardware if any

LIRCMD_CONF=""

 

#Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration

#If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application

#that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive

#frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER

#It will then populate all other variables without any user input

#If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure

#to leave this set to "false"

FORCE_NONINTERACTIVE_RECONFIGURATION="false"

START_LIRCMD=""

 

 

I would really appreciate any suggestions.

 

Thanks,
