IR Blaster (USB-UIRT) Cable Pack with Blink Emitter Add-on
This USB device creates a wireless, infrared connection between your cable or satellite box and the PC running Beyond TV.

(Includes audio/video cables, and blink emitter.)


The USB-UIRT, short for "Universal Infrared Receiver/Transmitter," allows any USB-equipped PC to exchange infrared signals with common audio/video equipment. For Beyond TV users who receive their television signal via satellite or cable boxes, the USB-UIRT completes a critical link: it allows the PC running Beyond TV to tune to the channels received on your receiver box so you can watch live TV and make recordings. Best of all...the infrared signal means that the connection between PC and receiver box is wireless. Additionally, this USB device does away with the hassles of similar devices that use a serial connection.

Included Blink Emitter

The USB-UIRT also includes a "Blink Emitter" add-on. One end of the Blink Emitter plugs into the back of the UIRT, while the other end can be securely fastened directly to the front of your cable box or satellite receiver. Using the Blink Emitter means higher success rate when changing channels on the external tuner since the signal is being blasted directly into the tuner's IR receiver.
