The way I got around that was to select Antenna as the input instead of Cable or Satellite. Then I went into the program guide and edited the channel selection to channel 2 only. My cable box outputs on analog channel 2. I was really starting to get pissed off at being stuck at the "no compatible IR blaster detected" screen.
I was thinking of switching to composite but it sounds like it looks for the IR their too.
