The author of the control script,post here most days.. I am sure he can 
tell you what to do.. I will try to help as best as i can..
 Did you run  CodeSearch.pl ? If not that is the place you need to 
start...If that works and shuts down your box then the script should 
control your box...There is a few things that have to be changed in the 
MyBlaster script also..You must make sure you have the right serial port 
defined(it defaults to com2)...
Also place the code, that code search finds in the place where you find 
this:$remote_code="277";  277 is my code for the 3250hd you would change 
this value to what the search finds...  you also need to change the 
device type:  Look for  $Device_Type="1"; for you change the 1 to a 3... 
You also have to chmod them to 755...This allows them to execute...
Hope i didn't confuse you... I am sure the author can fix any 
errors...Good luck
