Dish Channel Switching...

I have been using a Dish 811 with SageTV for well over a year now and I have no real complaints. 3.0.13 appears to run fine but I have a minor annoyance maybe someone could assist me with...

I use a USB-UIRT to channel change the Dish 811. Currenty in SageTV I have the Tuner setup as # of digits in channels as 0, and to not send an enter or anything like that in the ir stream. Here is what I get. 3 digit channels (HBO-300, FOX-205) change fine. But my STB has channels with 4 digits (HBOHD - 9456, ESPNHD - 9424, TNTHD - 9420) etc. When I try to type in 4 digits the tuner just accepts the first 3 and does a change, this works the same way in guide as well. I have to SCROLL in LiveTV Guide with the arrow keys to the channels with 4 digits area and select a watch now to get the tuner to change the channel (Any remote input does nothing).

To confound the problem even more, I have digital OTA HD channels mapped. CBSHD would be 005-01, NBCHD would be 004-01 or 004-02. And as of yet, I have never been able to get a remote key entry to change these channels. If I want a 3 digit channel and I have 4 digits selected in SageTV setup, it adds a leading 0. If I want a 3 digit channel and I have 5 digits selected it adds 2 leading 0s.

Why isnt there an option to just allow the remote key press to be passed to the USB-UIRT? This is how the Dish remote works. If I key 3 digits and hit enter it should just send 3 digits. If I key 4 digits and hit enter it should send 4 digits, etc etc.

Can anyone offer some help on this?
