Guys, I've got a VIP222k and use the attached files to control the
box, via the blaster.  I have just run the blaster out of the HDPVR
and taped it to the front of the STB, right near the eye.

resetsound.sh is a script I found around here that has fixed my lip
sync issue when recording from my Dish STB so I figured I'd share it
too if you need it.
