MCE Remote to Control STB (1 Viewer)

I have been configuring MP and setting up my PVR for about 6 weeks now and I finally am able to capture the output of my set-top box, but I am unable to control the box using my MCE remote. Yes, I have programmed the volume and on buttons, but how do I control all the functions of the box using the remote? I know this question has definitely been answered, but I was unable to find any information.

I have tried using HIP, but I am unsure how to configure sending IR signals to my STB. I have also tried using the USBIRT page in the set-up, but I get an error for each button I am asked to press (likely due to the fact that I don't know where to download the drivers). If someone knows of a method to essentially, press each and every key on the STB remote and teach them accordingly to the MCE remote, please advise. Thank you.

I am unable to change channels on my set top box using the MCE remote and IR blaster. The transceiver flashes when I press buttons on both the MCE and STB remote, but I have absolutely no clue how to teach the remote to change channels. I have tried many methods, but am clueless how to install them & get them to work.
