However, something else that was suggested to me, is that you might want
to consider an ir extender. Or putting the PVR-150 in the frontend box.
Not sure what your constraints are though, for either an ir extender run
or a capture device in or attached to the frontend box. There's a point at
which I find its better to buy something suited for the task than it is to
try to cobble something together. ;)
