Your first mistake was trying to use a series 1 image on a series 2 Tivo. They are not compatible, plain and simple. The 2nd was trying to use a Sony image on a Hughes box. You can use a series 1 SAT-T60 image on a Philips DSR6000 or Hughes GXCEBOT and your Sony remote will work on the box you installed the T60 image on. If Sony offered a series 2 DTivo for sale then it's quite likely you could use the Sony image on your HDVR2 but since Sony doesn't market a S2 DTivo you're SOL.
If you want to get a peanut remote to work with a SAT-T60 then you can install a DSR6000 or GXCEBOT image on the drive and it will work fine.
Please don't PM me or any other members looking for personal assistance. You'll do better by posting (after you've exhausted the search feature, of course) and taking advantage of the collective expertise of the membership instead of a single individual that may or may not be able to help you. Thank you and enjoy your stay at DDB!
