Possibly a dumb question, but what does this (from the slimdevices.com SB2 hardware specification)mean?

Headphone output Standard 1/8" jack also functions as an IR blaster

It means that you can plug in an IR emitter (as used by Tivo etc) and have the SB2 transmit IR codes to, for example, your amp. I'm not sure how usable this functionality is right now, or if anyone is using it already. I have a bunch of emitters but no use for them right now.

Thanks Radish. BTW, I just got home 10 minutes ago and there was a shiny new Platinum SB2 waiting for me to unwrap. Got yours yet?

Supposed to be being delivered today. Ground shipping from Cali to NY takes a long time :( Sorry I wasn't able to provide you any pics in advance!

Does anyone know whether the "IR blaster" works yet?

unfortunately, it doesn't seem like it will be ready in time for 6.1:
