But physically, there's a difference between
HDPVR --> [IR] --> STB
BE --> [IR] --> STB
I'm confident that your explanation of functional equivalence is
spot-on, but I'm unclear why one got so much focus in the wiki.
Basically, if I had a "spare" IR Transmitter on my BE waiting to be
used or could use the IR Transmitter from the HD PVR, which one do I
choose and why?
