Finally got around to this last night. I changed the input for lirc and then
ran irw. The only buttons that work are the numbers. I don't think the
lircd.conf file I downloaded from the lirc site fully works with my remote.
Do you know if hauppauge changes the output codes?
I think that I'll have to use irrecord to get it working correctly. The
numbers work in mythtv now, I just got to get the rest of the buttons
