Windows 7: Media Center and IR Setup

Media Center and IR Setup

I am attempting to get Media Center 7 to setup my IR blaster to work with a Scientific Atlanta 1850 set top box.

It can't do it automatically and none of the codes work. I've tried to do it manually but WMC 7 just keeps asking me to hit number 1.

Does anyone have a suggestion how to fix this or what I am doing wrong?

What does IR stand for? (Like the Brand.)

IR stands for Infrared. I am using a Hauppauge 1850 card as a tuner and a control of the set top box. Can't figure out what the code is inside Windows Media center to control the set top box.
