I'm using the Hauppauge HDPVR. I held the IR exactly in front of the IR
point 2 times, making sure to not move during the700+ tries of code., Should
be ok for this part.
Yes they seem to use same remote for all devices, reason why I put the
second device information in my previous message, for which I found some
code used by a "slingbox" remote.
I'll try the new code, as soon as I manage to get my blaster working again.
