Look for your brand/model DirecTV Receiver here ....

There are several different kinds of serial ports on satellite receivers. You need to pick up a compatible cable which will plug into the back of the TiVo's serial port and the receiver's serial port. You will then be able to ditch the IR blaster cable and your problem should be solved. First check the TiVo web-site for the correct part.
