The LRM-519 uses an IR blaster to change the channel on a set top box. My experience was that it worked great with my SA8300HD. The LRM-519 gets its TIVO like guide from Microsoft. It has a network port for guide downloading/access and the guide is excellent. You can also get the guide via a telephone line (slow). It is free for life. Things worked well.
If there is a IR code for your STB you should be fine. Look for the manual online or call.
Only problem I had with it is that it is more of a TIVO device than a DVD recorder. For example no editing capabilities. But you can burn to disc which was a plus. It was pretty slick. And you can also hook it up to your home network PC to move files. I never attempted this but if I remember correctly it is a feature of the unit..
