What's the current recommended IR transmitter (that's actually
available for purchase) these days?  I'm getting tired of my dumb
serial transmitter not working quite right and making playback hiccup
whenever it does anything.  I'd like something that's well supported,
that doesn't lock down the CPU for timing, and can control a dish
receiver.  I do have an hdpvr, and I expect that blaster might work
fine in a few more months to a year, but it sounds like TX is not very
solid right now, or at least interferes with recording.  RX would be a
bonus, but not a requirement.  I think this leaves USB-UIRT and
CommadIR.  Are there others?  is the CommandIR worth double the price
of the USB-UIRT?  Thanks for any comments.
