what is the IR port for on the Comcast HD cable box?

Just got a HDTV for xmas (yay!), and today picked up the HD cable box from Comcast - the box is a Motorola DCT6200, with an IR port on the back... anyone know what the heck that port is supposed to be used for? it doesn't say if it's for input or output... I couldn't find any info on it...

I'm guessing that I still have to use the IR blaster (there's no serial port on the cable box), but I was just curious what the port is supposed to be for.

thanks in advance

Most likely to control a VCR. Many cable boxes can use IR blasters to control a VCR so you can use the cable box's guide to schedule recordings.

The cable box? No, there is currently no cable box with TiVo available.
