Ok I'm curious could the irblaster.info's blaster work
with a usb to serial coverter? and I don't understand
why any serial device can not be used with a usb to
serial converter. I use the converter with my routers
and with my stereo. I thought any device that uses
rs232 could be used with my usb to serial coverter.
Yet the FAQ is saying no?
