Scientific Atlanta lircd general.conf - bad naming convention - use alternate file

Bug Description

The lirc package currently supplies generic lircd.conf files for popular remote and set top boxes. An update to one of these files is necessary:

When selecting "Serial Port (UART) : Scientific Atlanta Cable box" the file /usr/share/lirc/transmitters/scientificatlanta/general.conf is selected -- dictated by the configuration file /usr/share/lirc/transmitter.hwdb

This file does not follow naming conventions for lircd.conf and causes errors in most programs which use it. Example:

             NUM_1 <<code>>
should be:
             1 <<code>>

A more popular file can be used (attached) which controls virtually all Scientific Atlanta Cable boxes and is compliant with lirc standards.
