Two sets of digit codes? (1 Viewer)

Dumb Question Time...

I'm considering using IRSS for controlling both my satellite-TV and cable STBs. I see in the Wiki that I can send IR commands to the different ports of my USB-UIRT transmitter... but I can't see anything about using device-specific number codes.

The IRBlast Wiki page doesn't have anything about this possibility...

I can confirm that this feature works with MCE controllers. However, I don't know about UIRT...
I would recommend to first try to make it work with Translator. You can learn the IR and try to blast on a given port. This will also indicate what the port names are.
Once this works you can use it on the IRBlast command: IR Blast

I think I should expand a little bit...

Since they don't interfere with each other, I'm guessing that my cable STB and satellite STB use different sets of digit-codes for changing channels. From what I've seen of the IR Blast command, it doesn't support different sets of number-codes for blasting.

From the Wiki...
----------
IRBlast -host HTPC -pad 4 -channel 302
This would blast the 3.IR, 0.IR, and 2.IR commands on the HTPC computer to the default blaster port.
----------

So I can't set up something like

IRBlast -host HTPC -profile satellite -port 2 -channel 302

to blast satellite.3.IR, satellite.0.IR, satellite.2.IR to Port 2 of my USB-UIRT... and then

IRBlast -host HTPC -profile cable -port 1 -channel 302

to blast cable.3.IR, cable.0.IR, cable.2.IR to port 1.

Perhaps not...

How well does IRSS stay isolated from other programs? Since one of my capture cards is a Hauppauge Collossus 2, I can use its blaster program for one box, and use IRSS for the other.

(Assuming, of course, that whatever PVR software I decide to use is capable of running separate executables or batchfiles for each capture card/STB I configure...)

I've been looking at the Wiki for IRSS, and one thing looks potentially promising.

There are command-line parameters that can be used with the Translator program - the ones that caught my attention are:

-channel [Number] [Padding] [Port] [Delay]
Blast a series of IR Commands contained within the given channel number.
Use the padding value to specify the minimum size of the channel number.
You can specify a delay (in milliseconds) between each channel digit.
All blasting will be performed on the specified port.

-config [Config File]
Use a specific configuration file.

Now, my thought is - if I set up a different configuration file for each STB, with the different number-codes learned for each, then I could potentially set up the channel-change command as:

"translator -config satellite.cfg -channel {chan} 4 2 250" for the satellite-TV STB

or

"translator -config cable.cfg -channel {chan} 4 1 250" for the cable STB

If this is do-able, then my problems may just be solved...
