You can get a serial IR blaster or receiver from Calgary Alberta Canada, we 
build them semi-professionally.  It will be less expensive than going through 
the States, or Europe.

If you are interested email me directly and I can send you pics and pricing

Oh goodness, no I wouldn't attempt to make my own driver... I'm not that

I just needs something that would work "out of the box" with minimal
interference from me.

There are a number of issues with the Scientific Atlanta 32xx boxes and IR.
I would check around to make sure you get an IR blaster that is compatible.
My Actisys IR-200L blaster doesn't work with the 32xx but does work with
2000.  Alot of people report success with building their own IR blaster.

I bought mine here:  http://mytvstore.com

They recently started making their own MyBlaster line but I don't think
there are linux drivers.  They do seem willing to provide technical details
if you want to attempt your own driver.
