My suggestion is to get whatever preamp and DAC you think is best, without regard to the remote issue. If the DTV remote doesn't work, get a Logitech Harmony to control the whole thing. I switched from the DTV remote to a Harmony 900, which is fully programmable, including customizable soft buttons, and works in either IR or RF mode. I use it in RF mode with the included IR blaster/repeater to control components in my cabinet. Also controls the Mac Mini and AppleTV, which I don't think the DTV remote can do.
