@Tom. Thanks for your feedback. Actually when I first started this thread
it was because I was trying to use Firewire to record video change the
channel on my STB (Cisco RNG150N). Basically just use the one cord for
both. I was able to successfully capture video off my STB beautifully but I
couldn't find any way to change the channel. None of the scripts I tried
would work. Well that's not entirely true. One worked but it would only
changed the channel up and down, it would except no other commands.

So then I decided to try to the IR Blaster /Emitter that came with my HP
MCEUSB Kit to change the channel on my STB while still using the Firewire
to capture video. But it's not working either, well not yet at least. I've
got a few more things to try including picking up an Iguana IR USB which
I've heard good things about from this list. So we shall see.
