Thanks for the help! I found the setting for the select in the guide.
Utilities/Setup -> Setup -> TV Settings -> Program Guide -> page 2
I checked my .lircrc file, and, interestingly enough, for the keys that

values set for them, so they _should_ be the default of 0. Perhaps I
will try hard coding them to "0" just to be sure..
