IR to RS232

I would like to be able to turn off my Marantz processor in response to the “off” IR code sent by my DIRECTV remote. So I want some kind of device that I could learn the DIRECTV IR code, and in response from seeing that IR signal it would send the RS232 command to the marantz.

Can anyone recommend such a device?

Yes, it's called a good automation controller.
That's today probably more than you wanted to hear.

Can't you program the remote to do the Marantz? Not sure which model remote you have, but some DTV remotes do support controlling the Marantz products directly.

You could also ditch the DirecTV remote in favor of a universal remote which you can program to do everything.
