I would like someone to explain the IR Blasters for the Revue.
I have bought two, one Revue Bundle, and one Revue.
My questions are...
1) Does one need to use the IR Blasters?
2) What do they actually do?
3) Are there Pro's and Con's?
One will be for my elderly Father whom is "comfortable" with his (XP) desktop but knows nothing of Android. He has "Charter" HD box/DVR(Motorola) and a DVD player(not on HDMI port) both hooked to a Hannspree 42" HD/LCD. And the Revue will sit within ~20' of the router.
Mine will go straight to the HDTV as I only have a "Coaxial" connnection for the cable. I am in the basement where I get a low but usable signal for my android tablet. I understand "I" will have to change "source" to go between Live TV and the GTV. (?)
Any examples will help me understand how to use this product as mine are still in their boxes until xmas....the 23rd of December..
Thank-You and Merry Christmas
