[mythtv-users] Where to buy CommandIR ?

Yep, yep and yep.

One emitter worked just swimmingly...

then I enabled the other emiter with a set_transmitter (3 iirc) statement at
the top of a copy of the channel change script.  Then it would change
channels on both units.  I tried all sorts of means of electrical tape and
card board and putting them on separate sides of the same wall to try to
isolate and remove the possibility of IR interference... and the problem

I would love to get that solution working, as my newer Asus board was in
limited supply when it came to serial ports (hence my need to add the PCIe
card just to get a second serial port).  But I spent a good two or three
weeks trying all sorts of different ways of configuring software and
hardware and the dang IguanaIR still kept tripping both DTA's.

God Bless,
