Windows 7: Windows 7 and Virgin Media STB Woes [Samsung 2110c] - UK

Windows 7 and Virgin Media STB Woes [Samsung 2110c] - UK

Hi Guys,
I'm in the process of upgrading the last media center box which is currently running on Vista and am upgrading to Win 7.
This Vista box currently has an Hauppage 150 analogue TV card into which I feed my Virgin Cable TV signal via a Samsung 2110c STB - This all works fine and dandy.
Yesterday I installed Win 7 on a new partition and ran through the setup process to teach it the IR codes for the STB, but Win 7 Media Centre refuses to recognise them. Having googled about, I can only really find 2 or 3 threads relating to this problem - all of which basically say that the Samsung box isn't compatible with Win 7 MCE.
So I'm a tad stuck now.
Anyone any suggestions?
All's I can think of doing is (a) stick with Vista (b) Switch back to Sky and upgrade to Win 7 or (c) try buying another non-samsung cable box off eBay or somewhere . . . if so, how do I know which'll work?
Anyone help?!?
