If they are the URC IR emitters, they had an issue several years ago where the housing was built mistakenly with non-IR transparent material. So the IR emitters could not send out IR signal on the correct side (some IR could leak out the back where the blinker was). URC sent tons of replacements out to dealers but if you bought an older RF base station then....
Testing with new URC or any 3rd party IR emitters would be preferred. (or pop open the IR shell to expose the naked emitter and test with that).

Something I would try with the built-in IR blaster =
I never use the IR blaster on my customer's systems, so I'm not 100% about the behavior. But looking at the selection for "IR Output" on the RF programming tab - it seems to suggest that you have to select the "Blaster 1" if you want the IR blaster to work. It can't be on a port# or even "ALL Ports" for the IR blaster to work.

Again, the MRF100 doesn't have these selections. It is everything all the time on it. Which is why it wouldn't be affected by these programming settings.
