I have a Scientific Atlanta cable box and I purchased an http://www.scientificatlanta.com/pro...IRextender.htm which plugs into the USB port. My Dad has a Motorola cable box that also has a USB port. Would this same extender work? Or, can someone recommend something like this? I also noticed on the back of my Dad's Motorola he has a port labeled "IR". Can I plug an IR Extender device into this port and accomplish the same thing?

No the Scientific Atlanta IR extender only responds to S.A. commands.

(at least it didn't respond to any of my other remotes)

If the port is labeled "IR REMOTE INPUT" you can use this ir extender for $13:

ww dot irblaster dot info/motorola_rx.html

(sorry, can't post a url, replace dot with .)


If the port is simply labeled "IR" than it is an IR Blaster output port, not an input port.
