Unable to change 4 digit channels with MCE remote?

I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this problem. Using the MCE remote I cannot change to a 4 digit channel. I'm using LM Remote Keymap to change the channels on my Motorola 6100. Testing a 4 digit channel from within the LM Remote program manually works fine, but the remote seems to transmit 3 digits, then an 'ok' or 'enter', then the fourth digit. So if I enter 1729, it seems to send 172, ok, then 9. So of course I end up with channel 9. Changing the delay between digits doesn't do anyhting either.

I tried changing the 'digits per channel' in Sage's video setup/remote control options, but it doesn't retain any changes that I make, so it goes back to the default of 0.

I'm wondering if it's perhaps a limitation of the MCE remote?

When you are changing a channel in SageTV, open the LM RKM live trace viewer.

For not overloading the trace viewer, use your mouse to tune to a four digits channel withing the guide. You'll then see in the trace viewer what channel number SageTV has requested.
