Hm. I'd be very very very surprised if the 6416 actually used a different remote command set than the 6200, since the remote I have for mine is a DVR one... Actually, model of your remote would be good to know, and I could double-check it against mine. I'd be more inclined to think either your blaster isn't quite in the right location, or its non-functional. Do you have another IR receiver on your myth box you could use to listen to the hdpvr IR transmitter? (I actually did the bulk of testing with my hdpvr and an mceusb transceiver hooked up to a laptop, transmitting via the hdpvr to the mceusb transceiver).

The range on the transmitter is REALLY short, if you don't have the dongle in exactly the right place (like, even if its off by an inch), you won't get squat.
