Actually lots of integrators for home theaters and Crestron whole house 
AV take apart the reciever and tap into the logic line from the RF 
reciever and simply plop a IR reciever chip on it .  the RF is simply an 
RF carrier sending the exact IR codes over that Rf channel. nothing 
really special.

I will contact some of the guys I know and ask them if they have any 
photos of the procedure or a nice write up.  only problem I see is if 
your box dies you cant get it replaced under your service plan as you 
opened it.
