wow, that sucks. i'm surprised they wouldn't include the IR blaster on the remote itself, that seems like a MAJOR oversight considering like 80% of all electronics still require IR commands. I get the idea of having your 'ugly' gear tucked away, and the blaster can be tucked away with them, but they how do you operate your display? how many TV's use RF/Bluetooth controls?
the info on Logitech's page says it comes with 2 IR blasters, do you have 2? can you leave one in the room? is there a way you can order and connect a 3rd if needed?
