I'd be interested in looking at what you have as it might give me some
ideas, but unfortunately the STB I have doesn't have a serial port :(

There is a IR blaster port though, I wonder if pace would release info
about that?

Basically the micro sent whatever it recieved from the IR reciever down
the RS232 port as to the STB. It was then just a matter of running
through the remote buttons and recording their values. 

The stuff is at work, I'm not back there till monday. Will send it then.

btw. the guy who designed the hack, has left now but I'll give you what
help I can.

Cheers... Scott

I'll bite your hand off, I'm that eager! I thought I would end up having
to build something like that but was wondering how to workout what to
send. I guess you had to build the device so that it could record from
the remote, store it and then play it back on command?

Anything you can give me I would appreciate.
