I'm doing basically that with my harmony remote (model H688), using the
Tivo codes but with code set 2 (I still have a tivo in the room using
code set 0). The remotes.tar/tivo file that came from lirc worked
perfectly for me.
I just renamed the buttons in my lircd.conf so I could use UP, DOWN,
etc., instead of 2_UP, 2_DOWN, ...
My lircd.conf is here:
I made some mappings in the harmony config app and my .lircrc to adjust
which keys I want to do what (like the pg+/- keys transmit thumbs+/-,
which become Z/Q for commercial skip).
Good luck! :-)
