I use a harmony remote.
I had to manually learn around 70 remote keys by changing the device
ID and re-learning the next 6 codes.
Added these to my lirc conf file as I learned each code.
Then just mapped these to my usual button on my harmony. This took a
bit of work (probably 30 minutes) but it allows me to use the harmony
remote with the default AppleTV IR receiver without hitching up a
separate USB based IR receiver.
So all is well that ends well. Here is some more information for you:
All of the work necessary to get the AppleTV up and running with Myth
is located here:
Scott's done a terrific job of documenting this.
The atv-bootloader forum is full of very useful information as well.
I would suggest you look there for AppleTV and Myth help:
