Didn't see any answer in faq to this.

I recently got a second Showstopper (80 hours - Unit #2). I plugged it into the same system (inputs, power, outputs, IR cable blaster) as my current Showstopper (120 hours - Unit #1) and the IR blaster does not work on my General Instruments Cable Box. Went through set up as normal and set the Cable Box code the same as Unit #1.... no joy. Unplugged it all and put unit 1 back on line - worked fine.

Took unit #2 and plugged it into straight cable, using the box as the tuner and it works fine on the set upstairs. I can live with this set up... but is there a way to work around the IR Blaster problem if I end up getting another cable box for the upstairs set?

Thanks for any help.

Not that I'm aware of. It certainly sounds like you've troubleshoot the problem correctly. Replacing the motherboard is the usual fix.
