Well, I have a new Icon.  Apparently, it has a ir receiver on the rear.  That is the one to use.  I'm now teaching it to use my Direct TV H20 Reciever.

OK,

I finally figured out how to "learn" the H20 receiver commands.  You have to select "learn" then "aux" then "sat".  It will then learn coomands from the RC 32 remote that comes with the Direct TV HD receivers.  I got all the important buttons programmed in.   -:)

After many hours (10) , I got the Icon remote to learn the Direct TV H20 reciever commands, only to discover that the "Favorites" featureWILL NOT WORK.  The remote does not send the channel numbers rapidly enough.  So, if you try to send channel 36 the reciever gets the 3 but returns to the channel you were watching then it gets the 6.  I do not think there is a way around this.  In summary, this remote is worthless if you have a Direct TV high definition reciever.

did you try going into options and changing the key transmit time to see if it helps ?
