Definitely not. IRTrans software has no concept of controlling
anything other than IR commands (sending and receiving) and its VFD
(vacuum fluorescent display). I use this IRTrans software to receive
IR commands from my remote control and to display information on my
VFD. Fortunately, I don't need an IR blaster because I have DirecTV
and can control them with the a directv perl script, but no such
script exists to control DISH STB's. I'm sure others who are well-
versed in this sort of thing have tried. I'm not sure it's possible.
