Well Tom since the SA box can transmit and the PVR-150 can receive then the
SA box can issue instructions to the PVR-150, which is not exactly what you
would want, unless I'm misreading your message, it happens :).  what you'd
like is for the SA box to have a receiver and utilize the PVR-150's
transmitter so that you can issue commands to the SA box from your linux
