Just got FIOS, IR blaster questions...

I had been using Firewire channel changing with my Comcast STBs (three of them) for about 2 years now.

I am now changing over to Verision FIOS and the boxes I got do not have firewire on them. QIP 7100 and QIP 2500-3. I need an IR blaster solution for three STBs.

I have 1 HD-DVR which has a IR Blaster but it doesn't seem to have codes for the QIP series of the Motorola FIOS STBs. Does anyone have the HD-DVR IR Emitter working with a Motorola QIP series STB?

I looked at the USB-UIRT and they have two "external" emitters (do the emitters come with the USB-UIRT, or are they seperate?). The external ones take care of two STBs but what about the third? It would be a real pain to place that "internal" emitter (the big square box) in front of the STB exactly right so it emitts to the STB and not any of the other STBs. Do I need to buy a second USB-UIRT to manage the third STB?

My STBs have plugs in the back of them (looks like a small headphone jack) labeled "Remote" , can I get a cable to run from the "external" emitter port to this headphone jack port thingie on the back of the STB. This would make all the signals over the wire and no real blasting would be done, hopefully making it work better.

I have done several searches and am find some information on the subject, each little tid bit I find creates new questions (see above).
