I have this in /etc/rc.local:
hdhomerun_config <device number> set /ir/target "192.168.1.111:5000 no_clear"
lircd -H udp -d 5000
I think there are other ways to do it but this works and is easy to
do. You will have to look up what the first command does, I don't
remember. I got my device number from "hdhomerun_config discover".
