I have been lacking one critical component that I need to figure out. How to control my cable box which requires an IR Blaster to control. My cable company Comcast Nashville has disabled the serial port. I have in the past controlled to box with a Home Brew Transmitter for LIRC, but I have never been able to get it to work. Please see the following post for more information. newbielink:http://plutohome.com/support/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=621 [nonactive]
I have also looked at using pluto to control, but I have no Idea how to set this up. I am searching for a fix. Ideally, I would like to have a media director in each room with the cable boxes and control them with the MD, but I am currently lacking the ability to control the boxes.
Please any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
