You may want consider getting a JP1.2 cable. Then you could add the DirecTV code and program the 8820 from your PC.
A couple of current UEI remotes with the built-in code are the Radio Shack 15-100, 133, 134 and 135 and the Atlas OCAP 1056 (cheap and plentiful on ebay at the moment). The 15-100 and 133 are backlit and are 8-device like your 8820, the 135 is 7-device, and the 134 and Atlas are 5-device. The 134 also has colored buttons like the DirecTV remote. These are also programmable from your PC with the same cable as above (except the 15-100).
