    As title really. Can I set the MCE Remote IR blasters to turn on and off my Sony Tv and Amp? Would just be so much easier than diving for another remote :)

    The MCE IR blaster is used for changing channels when you are using a Set Top Box. They can't be used for controlling anything else. The MCE is minimally programmable in that you can get it to switch on & off some TVs.
