If you want to use an IR Blaster, take a look at this page:

info was recently added on controlling 2 direct tv boxes with 1 ir blaster.

you should also be able to find a cable that goes from the header on 
your mother board to a standard DB9 connector at a computer shop or on 
the net (or you could make one with some parts from your local 
electronics store)
