[mythtv-users] Digital Foxtel Integration (Australia)

Hi,

I have been a MythTV user in Australia since 0.15 and bought one of
the first DVB cards available here. I compile MythTV from SVN so I
think I am a seasoned user. I now hope to integrate Foxtel Digital
into my system by buying a Hauppauge PVR150 (retail version) and
connecting via SVideo.

After searching the forums I am unsure of the following aspects
regarding IR transmission. ie controlling the Pace DC420 STB via LIRC.
I did find a product from IRTrans (www.irtrans.de/en/) which seems
exactly what I am after as it states that it controls Pace STBs
although its expensive at 99 Euros.

Has anybody been successfully in controlling the Pace STB via some
IRBlaster? (homebrew or retail product).  Also does the retail version
of the PVR 150 contain an IRBlaster as it does in the US?

regards,
Barry
