I just picked one of these up to use as a simple DVR (don't need or
care for all the tivo functions - I only record like 3 shows a week).

Anyhow, it's not able to control my hughes HTL-HD SAT (directv) box via
the IR sat cable. The code it's got stored for the hughes apparently
isn't the one this HD box uses..

I don't see anyway of manually entering the proper IR codes. The
manual lists "if receiver isn't listed, select 'other'". However, there is
no "other" option in the list.

Anyone got this thing or have any suggestions?

thanks

I saw your post on the RCA PVR group. If your HTL-HD comes with a "VCR control cable" I would try getting the HUGHES to control the RCA. I did this with my Hughes E86 HD recevier as far as getting it to control my DCR7005n (the 7000's younger brother). Works like a charm.

Give it a look see at your manual (as I'm not real familiar with the new HTL-HD) and look for a VCR control cable port on the back of the STB as well as an IR cable that came with the packaging.

thanks for the replies..

I ended up returning it, too much of a hassle overall to save a few bucks.

Ended up buying the Toshibia SDH400 media server/tivo.

Works perfectly and supports the serial data port interface.
