Why not just stick some electrical tape over the IR sensor in the rega? Bit
less permanent than busting wires...

It's the original Rega Planet which is now used as transport to an external
DAC. I don't ever use the CD player's remote, so I wonder if I can yank a
wire internally to disable it.

For grins I just broke out the Planet's remote control and sure enough, most
of the buttons on it do some some equally odd things to the Squeezebox.
