    Hi, I'm looking for a set of IR Blaster cables for a used TiVO I just bought. Because I live in Alaska, the shipping fee will be $11.49 from TiVO on tip of the $7 for the cable! I wonder if anyone would be willing to send me a set they are not using for around $10.

    I understand it's Alaska, but I just wanted to ask if you have an Audio/Video store there. I don't know if you're in civilization or wilderness Alaska. A mid end Audio/video place will have IR emitters. Any IR emitters will work. In fact, a diffrent type would be better than the TiVo OEMs. I use SpeakerCraft ones. Xantech makes them too. Of course if you're in wilderness Alaska, it's a moot point.

    I don't think I have my old original blasters anymore. I think I tossed them because the replacements worked so much better.

    Mark's the Man! Thanks Mark, I got my IR Blasters. I can't thank you enough for your generosity. People up here in the 49th get screwed when we try to order things in the mail so it's nice when someone takes care of us. Why TiVO wanted $12 for shipping something so small is beyond me.

    Thanks again,

    Dang, if I read these forums more than once a month (marathon night), and I could find all my unused "blasters", I'd pony mine up!
