If you're lucky you might get a set-top box with a serial port, so  
you can skip the IR blaster.  I have one from Comcast and channel  
changes are very reliable -- I have yet to see one miss.  Only  
problem I've had is the audio level from the box is kind of low.  I  
compensated by lowering the audio on my analog tuner to match.
