Colossus IR Blaster setup

I will switching to a satellite STB soon (probably DISH duo 222k) and I need assistance setting up an IR blaster for a Colossus card. I could not find any detailed instructions on the forum for configuring the Hauppauge blaster, only a bunch of people that went with USB-UIRT. Before spending $$$ on that, Iíd like to see if I can get the Colossus IR blaster working with Sage, or if itís even possible.

Hereís my setup:
Sage v7.1.9.256
Windows 2003 server sp2
3.4G Dual 2G RAM

Also installed are 2 Hauppauge HVR 2250, which will be replaced by HDHR tuners for OTA once cable is nixed.

Iíve installed the Colossus card and it capturing just fine. My only problem is the blaster.

Iíve installed Hauppauge IRBlast and configured it to work with the STB Iím using as a test subject. I can change channels on the STB using the BlastCFG utility. The emitter flashes any time data is sent. When I try to change channels using Sage, the emitter does not flash and the channels do not change.

In setting up the capture card I selected:
Composite (the test box is not HD)
Use external cable or satellite
Hauppauge IR Blaster
Digital broadcast (local zip code)

The added channels and data are showing in the guide

Under source details, Hauppauge IR blaster StubDevice is selected.
There are no .ir files in the remotecodes\Hauppauge IR Blaster folder.

I believe Iím on the right track, but I know Iím missing something. Does anyone have any ideas? TIA
