1)  Make sure the batteries in the remote are in correctly and are
working.  If you have the same remote that I have (I've got this box
from about 2 years ago), there should be a small LED on the remote
that lights up when it is sending a signal.  If not, try using a video
camera/digital camera that has some "night shot" capability so that it
can see the infrared signals.  In short, make sure the remote is
putting out IR signals.

2)  Make sure that the IR receiver is receiving the signals and
outputting something.  I'm not really sure how to do this short of
sticking a VU meter on some of the leads, but I'm not sure which ones.
 Someone else might have a better approach on this part.
