It's worth noting that the database covered by the codeset search in
the script is pretty old.  If the cable box is relatively new, it's
possible that it simply won't work with the Zilog blaster.  This is
especially an issue with some of the newer low cost DTA boxes.

But yeah, definitely know what type of cable box it is would help.
