To: Discussion about mythtv <mythtv-users at mythtv.org>

I (like many people) have a digital cable box I would like to use with
my mythtv setup (in my case it's a Motorola DCT2200 series owned by
Cox).  Since I have heard far and wide the serial port isn't enabled
(hell, you can't even check the firmware on these boxes), I need to go
with an IR blaster.  I've searched but haven't really found any good,
(somewhat) easy to use guide for configuring LIRC and and IR-Blaster
for use with mythtv.  Can anyone suggest a good guide that offers a
pretty good walkthrough for a somewhat-new linux user?

Have found this helpful in the past.  Seems there is even a
'converted' source kit for the transmitter vs. changing the source
