The BBSB TV plugs are very cheap.
You could wire an IR transmitter easily & use something like LIRC to grab the control codes.
Easier & quite cheap:
Has a web interface so should be easy to control.
Good find on price, I think that is the BBSB onbline controller, there's some kind of tie in/assocaition between BBSB and DOMIA that I don't understand, they may be the same company.
Note! they are RF not IR, and there's no need to sniff the codes, they're all published on the BBSB forums, including the RF protocols if you really want to get down to low level, but at 30 quid I'd by the controller, plug it into your network and push some UDP packets from your RPi, job done.
