njerald you were right. The issue was with the XMP protocol used by this
remote. Thanks for the hint. I had to upgrade to lirc 0.8.6 which was a bit of
a challenge: ATrpms has the packages but yum wasn't picking them up. I
manually downloaded the RPMs and performed the upgrade. Starting from the
generic XMP config file I was able to use irrecord to capture the correct codes.
Below is a working lirc config for this remote. Because of the "flags XMP"
line you need lirc 0.8.6 for this to work. I've submitted it to the lirc
people. I hope it will be helpful to others.
