I had always assumed that DirectTV had a similar way to handle multiple receivers, but I've never used more than one DTV 
receiver at a time.

So are you saying that you would need two blasters and two instances of lirc to control two DirectTV receivers?

That would make the decision for me, but I already have DISH now. I just use two different versions of the perl script that 
runs my MyBlaster, no lirc required.
