Several folks (including me) asked about whether this would work with LIRC/Myth:
I just received mine: The answer is Yes:

The blurb does not make this clear, but it comes with an IR blaster which connects to the receiver. There are two jacks
for blasters on the receiver, so it looks like you could have 2 blasters.
So order with confidence, it will work. I think I'll order another as a spare as well.
Not bad for $13.99.
