    I've just setup MCE 2005 and got the remote control, receiver and blaster cables from E Buyer. I'm using a Sagem HD-D45 and have just bought a Yamaha YSP-1. Problem is, I've go the Yamaha in front of the Sagem and it obscures the IR receiver so it's difficult/impossible to use the remote on the TV. Yes I know, not exactly forward planning.....

    Anyway, although the blaster is meant for changing the channels on a set top box, I was wondering if it could be used to extend any IR signals i.e. the IR receiver sits on top of the PC and relays the TV IR codes via the blaster cable.

    Anyone know if this is possible?
