Yeah, I was playing with that tool earlier on... When I type in that
particular command I get this:
# pvr250-setchannel -a on -t -m 2 205.250
ioctl( tfd, METEORSINPUT ) failed.: Invalid argument
The -t flag is causing this particular error message... I can remove
it and this particular error message will go away, but I realize this
doesn't help since we want to send the signal to the tuner.
I do not have an IR Blaster setup, my computer is only setup to
"listen in" on my main satellite feed. This has been working prior
using the other driver, just FYI.
