So I'm using EyeTV in conjunction with a dual tuner DVR that way I don't miss any shows that might be on at the same time as my primary recordings also since EyeTV can sometimes screw up a recording I'm using the DVR as a backup. I have to travel for work and rather than take the risk of having my roommate play with it, I'd like to be able to access the STB Menu and Guide through EyeTV's IR Blaster in order to get at my DVR'd shows (mostly the secondary recordings) via ScreenSharing. Since the EyeTV is capable of powering the STB on/off and changing the channel I figure this is a pretty simple command. So basically I want to be able to send some basic IR commands (Menu, Guide, Up, Down, Select) to the EyeTV IR Blaster. I'm not sure if any of this is possible but if any of you have ideas on the matter it would be most appreciated. Edit: As I've continued to play with this I've switched from an IR Blaster to a Firewire setup. I can control the STB through EyeTv or AV/C browser, and I can through various button presses access the EPG, Change Channels, etc. The one thing I still can't access is the DVR menu. I think I need the right Hex Code but I"m unable to find what might work... Edit 2: So I'm updating this post as a personal log and because my numerous Googling has failed to show a similar solution (however poor) and if anyone happens to read my convoluted setup and has a suggestion to simplify matters it would be most appreciated. After getting the Firewire setup working I still was unable to access the DVR menu. Just before giving up on being able to control the cable box completely through the EyeTv and my Mac Mini I remembered that the IR Blaster setup for EyeTV has the option to enter a number of different commands before or after the channel number (Ok, Select, Menu!, etc). To make life harder the various utilities for controlling EyeTV over firewire fail to work in the IR Blaster setup screen so now I have a dual setup. The firewire is necessary to navigate the STB Menu as Apple's AV/C Browser features a control pad but I need the IR Blaster to even get to the Menu. My main issue is that EyeTV appears capable of doing so much more but the features are hidden in setup screens. I can power on and off the STB and even access the IPG and DVR but only if I go through the STB editor. Surely there's a script or hack out there to make the program do these things without accessing an editor where one wrong click and I end up resetting EyeTV's channel guide (which I've done twice today). If you have similar issues or suggestions for my own wacky obsession here's a good place to post it.
