I have this remote and have had a lot of luck programming it to work
with all of my other devices. I agree that the button layout is a
little awkward, but overall I'm happy with it.
I haven't had much luck setting it up with myth though. I tried
installing it like the ATI remote but I was never able to make it work.
I searched all the LIRC and Myth archives, but never found anything that
was much help. I gave up on it for now, but would really like to make
it work in the future.

There's also some lag when using the remote in RF

config problem). But overall, it's serviceable.
