One potential problem with using the PVR-150 IR receiver to do this is
the fact the Hauppauge cards may still be limited to the RC-5
signalling protocol (I'm not sure if the newer cards supporting the IR
blasters are any different.) If Raj's STB remote control uses some
other protocol, irrecord \may\ not be able to detect the signals. I'd
give it a try though, especially in raw more, just in case it works.

Raj - have you run the IR blaster detection script from the blog -
this may speed things up in determining whether the IR blaster will be
able to control your STB.
