Thanks. I think the myth wiki link was what I was looking for. My
remote has both a Power and a Standby button so instead of worrying
about how to make the script "toggle" off and on I think I'll setup
the power button to "xset dmps force on" and the Standby button to
"xset dmps force off" using irexec.
