A stand alone BLASTER?

Recommended Posts

Obviously FLIRC makes it easy to be flexable with an IR remote control.  Its a great solution.

 

But many computers also need an IR emitter (aka transmitter, aka BLASTER) to work at controlling cable boxes and other items on your computer and HDTV system.   

 

What are the best suggestions for an IR blaster?

I believe XBMC worked around doing this by enabling cable card support in the HTPC. So you don't actually control the external device in this case?

 

TBH I'm not entirely sure on this. I haven't had cable since college, and that was only because it came with the dorm. 

 

Other than that, what else would you be controlling?  Unless you have some Arduino stuff setup and programmed to run off of keyboard commands, that could be cool.

$6 per month cable card fee from COMCAST. If you already have a regular digital tuner. Else just a cable card with nothing else will be zero dollars per month.
