I used the simple transmitter design from the LIRC site, with a total of =
Ohms resistance (I didn't want to fry anything). The LED is about an =
from my Dish box.
I made sure there were no LIRC-related packages installed, and I removed =
lirc modules directory from /lib/modules/`uname -r`
Then I built LIRC, specifying that there was a transmitter LED, and =
"software carrier" selected (which was default).
jvc_send built with no problem.
After reboot, I had to mknod /dev/lirc c 61 0 , as the device file went =
- perhaps devfsd made this happen.
I did this, too:
cat JVC_4700.org >>/etc/lircd.conf
Now, my rc.local has:
setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none
mknod /dev/lirc c 61 0

I'm going to be constructing my transmitter this weekend for my DISH=20
box. I'm glad to hear you got it working. Can you sum up how you got=20

I got LIRC set up with a receiver, but I have not had any luck=20
transmitting (because of the DISH network box remote pulse frequency and =
my ActiSys not able to transmit,e tc).
