Thanks for the suggestion.
I spent a few days reviewing the SRP1103/27 with other remotes, and I figured out that a good way to know a u-remote is compatible with DTV boxes, is to check that it has MENU, GUIDE, INFO and (-) buttons.
So I went down to K-mart today to compare u-remotes and I liked the philips, the other brands had really bad confusing button layouts. Since everything at the K-mart is always over priced, I went and got the SRP4004/27 off of ebay for $6.49, it's the same as the SRP1103/27 but it's physically bigger and has buttons that can glow.
I'm now waiting for the remote to arrive in the mail...
