Need help with over the air set top box, or replacement advice

I'm using a Samsung SIR T151 STB to receive over the air broadcasts. To get my Tivo (Series 1, Philips) to change channels on the T151 using the IR out on the Tivo, I have to let the Tivo think I've got a satellite box. In the available Samsung codes, there are two code sets that generate a response from the T151. The problem is that the T151 receives only single channel requests from the Tivo for both of these code sets. So, for example, when the Tivo is trying to change to channel 36, the T151 changes to channel 3 and then changes to channel 6. Varying the speed of changing and enabling/disabling "enter" after channel transmission make no difference.

Please let me know if you have suggestions about how to remedy this. Also, please let me know if you can recommend an OTA High Definition STB that definitely plays nicely with Tivo so that as a last resort I can replace the T151 with some degree of confidence.

Thanks much!

Dumped D* for OTA only - we'll see how long I last...
