I would configure another lircd socket, /dev/lircd1, attached to the
serial transmitter's LIRC device (likely /dev/lirc1). I think your
system is trying to use /dev/lircd which is attached to the Hauppauge
device, which does not support sending.
You can do this if using two different LIRC kernel modules such as
lirc_serial and lirc_i2c. I think you still have to compile 2 separate
instances (with unique major/minor numbers, info on the MythTV wiki)
if using lirc_serial with two different serial port devices.
