DirecTV DVR IR Blaster?

Do the DirecTV DVRs come with an IR Blaster cable? If so, what is it for and/or why would one need it?

No they do not come with a IR blaster and can not use one.

It is unnecessary since the DirecTiVo's are a combined DirecTV dual tuners and TiVo DVR functionality.

Actually the DTiVos from early on did come with everything the SA TiVos came with.

It seems that TiVo had one package of accessories that was included with the SA TiVos and the DTiVos.

This is the reason I have 4 ir blasters and four serial cables even though I have only two SA TiVos.

I bet if one was to search through the old DTiVo archives one would find 100s of posts wonder what these strange cables were for.

The Sony SAT-T60 would use the IR blaster to control some Sony VCR's for the "Save to VCR" function. It didn't have batch save though so I never got around to setting it up on mine.
