I've recently found myself with a free machine after building a new one,
and the specs seemed suitable for mythtv.
Only problem is a TV card that only accepts NTCS via composite - the
tuner is PAL - so I'd need to control the cable box via serial.

I know from my tivo that ir sucks, and I'd followed a thread on
tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb and wrote something that appears to work.

You can find the thread here
My code (in python) is attached to my post. Please experiment with it,
and read through the rest of the thread for more detail on the protocol.
