I also have a PVR-150 that came with an IR blaster and I am having
trouble figuring out if I can use it.  And no, it isn't an IR
receiver.  The device is a two headed thing that has an ir blaster and
an IR receiver tethered to a common connector.

If anybody has any info on the feasibility of using this thing, I'd
like to hear it.
