I recently couln't find any supplier in Sweden, so I ended up ordering from here:

Quick delivery, not very expensive.

Something here may suit your needs.

Caveat:- I've never used the blaster via the SB3, but I do have their (Xantech) other stuff controlling gear hidden away and have not had any issues.

Good luck.

Dunno, its an IR repeater so I guess so...

If I get a chance I'll try it over the weekend as I have a couple of spare repeaters, if no-one else chips in between now and then.

I currently have a large inventory of IR blasters available for purchase. You can buy anywhere from 1 to a few hundred if you want (contact me for any quantities over 10 for a better price). I ship worldwide with pretty much better rates than any other vendor.

Excuse the lack of detailed description for the blasters, but I haven't officially launched them on our web site. I'm only really mentioning their availability to other Slim Devices forum members.

These are standard blasters that will work beautifully with the SqueezeBox or Transporter or any other IR signal generating equipment, such as Windows Media Center PCs, TiVo, most brands of consumer electronics gear (Sony, Denon, Yamaha, etc..) as well as remote systems from most vendors like Xantech, RTI, Universal Remote, etc...

Okay, I loaded up the IR blaster plugin (from here http://www.gwendesign.com/slimserver/dev_hard_and_software.htm#irblaster )at the weekend, set it to 'repeater' mode (no learning)and it worked fine with stock IR repeaters from Xantech.
I was using an SB3 with SC7 on win xp via a wifi link. It happily repeated signals to a Sky plus box (via a 'digisender') and a sony DVD player.I have the type with two senders on each cable and I didn't try the set up via a multi way connector.

It wouldn't repeat IR signals when the server pc was switched off, which kind of makes sense really.

I would have played more but Scotland were winning at the rugby for a change!
