Not to mention that you're being extremely rude -- I'd call it ripping
off -- a small business.  Not a nice thing in my book.

I have a question about the codeset on the wiki though.  I have the Dish
322, dual-tuner model.  According to the manual, tuner 2 can only be
controlled by a UHF remote.  Yet I notice that there are multiple unit
definitions here in this file.  Does that mean that there is an
undocumented way to control tuner 2 on the Dish 322 via IR?
