I just ran some tests on my WHS 2011 with the Add-in and have discovered there doesn't appear to be a way to use a Digital Cable Box.  On my Windows Media Center PC, I was able to use a USB to IR receiver that also hasd an IR repeated positioned in front of the Digital Cable Box.  When changing channels using the WMC remote, it would change the channel on the Cable Box instead of in the WinTV card.

Is there any plan to add Digital Cable box support into MediaPortal or the WHS Add-in?

I am also interested in helping with any testing to make this possible.  I am a server admin by trade, but not a programmer.  I can assist in testing and bug reporting only.
