Of course you could always mod the cable box with an internal ir blaster.  Probable something like the simple transmitter on lirc.org.  It would be alot cleaner, not to sure where the led would sit inside.

Sorry for the confusion and probably off-topic-ness, but with respect to
driving Scientific Atlanta boxes to change channels via the "IR" port on the
back -- indeed this is impossible. I was confused because I had hooked my
Tivo up directly to this port using a stereo plug and it successfully
changed channels. What I was unaware of until yesterday, however, was that
the Tivo actually has a built-in IR blaster in the front which works for
some people without any other mechanism -- that is what was actually working
in my case and not the cable, as verified by simply unplugging the darn
thing and having it continue to change channels...
