Hey guys

Just bought an MCE remote and it's come with two extra tiny IR receivers that plug the back of the main IR receiver.  Does anybody know what they are for and how you are supposed to use them.

Thanks in advance

Aren't they blasters? That is you stick them in front of devices you want to control (like a cable or Sky box) and MCE can send the codes to control the box. Most useful if you want to record a show and have MCE change the cable box to the right channel prior to the recording starting
