[mythtv-users] mythtv, lirc and "key mover" capability

I have a One For All URC-6131 that I'm trying to get working with a
Packard Bell serial receiver for my MythTV setup. I programmed the "pvr"
mode to Phillips Tivo (code 0618). I've been having problems learning the
codes with irrecord but just now tried the "TIVO" config file from the
remotes.tar.bz2 on lirc.org. It works great... except I have keys that
are not mapped (ff/rew skip keys, pip, info, a couple others)...
apparently, the tivo doesn't use these functions.
My question is, my remote allows me to "move keys" from other
modes/definitions... so I can basically program these unused keys in pvr
mode to a code from another key in another mode. I've done this but I
cannot figure out how to use them. irrecord just keeps telling me
"Something went wrong, try again". Do the keys that I move to my pvr mode
need to come from a definition that is similary to the tivo defintion (by
definition, I mean the values for bits, flags, eps, header, etc)? Or
would I be better off learning them as a second remote in my
/etc/lircd.conf file and simply tweaking my mythtv config to watch "both"
remotes (even though it would be the same remote and even the same mode)?
