I had a similar problem with my DirecTV DVR H23-700. There is a switch in the system setup to toggle between RF and IR remote settings. Do you know if your box is RF or IR?

I also have two SageTV MC PCs with two DirecTV H23-600 connected to them. I ended up using a serial connection to change channels since I had limited success with IR blasters. I found the IOGear GU232A works great for this application. I ended up using 4 total per each setup since both of my SageTV computers do not have RS-232 ports. There is also a null modem between each STB and the PC connection.
