Has anyone figured out how to get the Hauppauge PVR-150's integrated IR blaster to work with this device (Pace DC50X)? I am able to get the PVR-150's IR blaster to work with my Motorola DCT-6200, but not he DC50X. Thanks!

Please ignore. I don't know what I'm saying about S-Video here. I read 
the top part and went to sleep. 

None the less there are no outputs on this unit other than coax so the 
only way to use it would be to hard wire the PVR to channel 3 and use 
the IR input to change the channel.
