Am using an EyeTV250 Plus with EyeTV 2.5 software. I would like to be able to have scheduled recordings automatically change the channel on my cable box (a SA 3250).
I've checked the ElGato web site for info, and they say the software will work with two different IR blasters:
One from ZephIR http://www.thezephir.com/
And one from IRTrans http://www.irtrans.com/
Anyone using either product, and have a recommendation? Specifically I want to be able to have the EyeTV power the Mac on a few minutes before a scheduled recording, change the cable box to the correct channel and then record the scheduled show.
This works fine now, as long as I leave the cable box set to the correct channels manually., but I would like to automate it.
One issue I have with both of the listed IR Blasters, is neither seems to have much in the way of current listing of supported cable boxes. The newest SA box on one site is a pretty old 2100. I know they probably can learn the codes, but really would like to make sure first.
