And you have a CM7000? That's unusual. Pretty much every remote and IR blaster I've ever tried with it has a code listed under "Pioneer cable box" that will control it minimally. I don't recall anyone here ever saying they had a problem with any other remote, either.
Try the Panasonic cable box codes, because in the old days, those supposedly crossed-over. Also, try any other Pioneer or Elite component codes it might have. If the remote has an "auto-programming" feature, try that.
If nothing else works, all I can say then otherwise is to try a newer remote. Remotes that come with TV's, VCR's, or DVD recorders usually don't contain the library of codes that aftermarket remotes do, and that's probably what the problem is. You can buy decent learning remotes now for under $15.00. I've seen G.E.'s at Target for under that (universal remotes, of course, are even much cheaper - but it probably won't work the menus or guide, like I said).
