I've since removed the original IguanaIR channel change scripts... but may
be able to resurrect where I copied them from.
I purchased the "two plugs" version" with two plug in emitters. I also
tried using stereo-mono splitters on the emitters hoping that was the
issue... but no avail.
If the consensus is that the IguanaIR is worth the effort, then I don't mind
resurrecting it... it just seemed like more trouble then it was worth a few
