I've got one of these - although I'm a Virgin customer. These units also have a
Sky mode which should handle your requirements.
I don't know if the guy is still selling these, I've had mine a while.
It does it's own encoding in a chip in the 9-pin serial plug, so it makes
programming simple: you just assign the serial port and your script pumps out
the digits/commands to the port (as ASCII) as required. Doesn't need LIRC
(although Jarod may disagree).
