I'm pretty sure that was in my letter as well.

Cable is the only thing I get from Rogers. For internet I use a company 
called IGS (a subsidiary of CIA/Cybersurf), they are a DSL company. The 
main reason I use them is because when I called them to ask 'what are 
your terms of service?' they said 'we don't have one'. I've never been 
throttled, and I run my own mail and web server.

As for the IR blaster, I am going to try using the VCR Commander I 
bought years ago from Rogers. I'll have to convert it to serial, which 
shouldn't be a problem, but figuring out the type might be troublesome.
