Well it only took me a month to get around to doing this.
I tried many irsend's with no luck. I tried using a digital camera (one which I
verified could see flashes from a normal remote) after 'irsend SEND_START mceusb
Power' but saw nothing. The log file
/var/log/lircd contains just normal messages:
Sep 1 11:51:03 mythtv lircd: accepted new client on /dev/lircd
Sep 1 11:51:03 mythtv lircd: removed client
Finally I opened the thing up, and I observe only 2 LED'ish elements at the
front of the case. One is the visible LED that lights when the unit receives a
remote signal, and I assume the other is the
IR sensor. There doesn't appear to be any third IR transmitter element.
I'm guessing that means this thing has no transmit capability, no?

Not sure about the mertiline version, but the V2 philips one that I have
the transmit function is only via 2 fly leads that plug into the back of
the receiver box, these can then put attached with a self adhesive pad
onto the equipment you want to transmit to
