Ok, I have a 'homebrew' ir sender that connects to my pc's rs232 serial port see http://www.irblaster.info/
I want to control my UK SKY digibox with it through mythtv (and perhaps then attempt the same in another install with VDR). I have a lircd.conf file for my sky remote and have installed lirc to use the ir sender. However, I dont know how to test this.
Now I have hit a wall. Has anyone managed success in doing this? Do I need to set up a device template for a sky box (av equip) and / or the ir sender?
Any guide will be great
