So, I am not understanding what you need. You can learn the codes in the web admin, but it is not working? If this is the case, are you running an i386 version or amd64 version. I know that after LMCE 704, the USB-UIRT only works w/out IR dongles while running the amd64 version. If you are running an i386 version, a dongle is required to use the blaster feature of the usb-uirt. I have a bug report posted here:

If tis is the case, you will need ir dongles available here: http://www.smarthome.com/8170.html?src=WG1000118&gclid=COiVwq_b4pICFQUilgodGlcj_g, or anywhere else you can manage to find one.

Hope that helps.

Well first off I am using the amd64 version and also linuxmce 0704, when I try to learn the codes by using the learn feature in the web admin nothing happens.  Your http://mantis.linuxmce.org/view.php?id=4075, tells me to enter a username and password.

Also I have a usb service port on the back of my tv, I was wondering if I could probably program the codes that way, if it was possible?
