I saw that someone else asked the question but I would like to submit it as a feature request. For a noob it seems that all the hardware is there to make it work. This would be very desireable since I would not have to buy more hardware to get all my gear in a closet and control it via IR from the main room and control it via IP from the rest of the house. The utltimate would be if global cache would sell a mini IR receiver that could connect directly to iTach products via 3.5mm jack.
