I just got a DISH 6000 DBS receiver with the OTR cartridge and am basking in new high definition brilliance. However, the cartridge has a somewhat noisy fan that runs ALL the time, even when the receiver is powered down. The DISH tech I called about it said that's because the receiver runs at about the same temperature whether it's "on" or not. Putting aside the fact that that just doesn't make any sense, it's also a power waster, not to mention the thing will certainly wear out faster, and thus get noisier when the bearings start to go, if it doesn't stop once in a while.


So, the only way to get the fan to stop running is to unplug the receiver. Radio Shack carries a gadget called "Plug 'n Power" that would allow me to plug the receiver into it and turn it off that way, (the equivalent of pulling the plug). However, it's an RF device. I need a similar device that works on IR codes so I can program it into my MX-1000 universal remote control, which only works with IR codes. Surely someone out there makes such an device! Anyone know of one and where I could get it?
