I have had this combination working for a long time on various distros, but my latest upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10 isn't working.  I have a PVR-150, and can get the receiver working with the gray remote, and an irblaster connected to /dev/ttyS0.  Sorry for the console soup, I'm trying to make the question concise.

With lircd.conf as listed below, my irblaster doesn't show up in the irsend list, and naturally doesn't work.  If I flip the order, it shows up, but still doesn't work:
myth@mythtv:~$ irsend SEND_ONCE HUGHES_DSS_GAEBO 1
irsend: command failed: SEND_ONCE HUGHES_DSS_GAEBO 1
irsend: hardware does not support sending

I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance,
