I am also working on getting my mythbox to control the same SA3250.  I have 
seen on the list that the Actisys IR 200L (mentioned all over the list) will 
work with the 3100 series Explorer boxes.  I have asked the list if anyone 
has been able to get the SA3250 to work, but apparently you and I are the 
only two people on the list with the 3250 cable box.    

So...in that spirit I have started bulding the homebrew IR transmitter (2 
solders left to go) and will let you know if I am able to get it to work.
