[mythtv-users] Need help configuring another cheap remote

I have a cheap generic usb remote. It has the typical keyboard keys plus a
built in mouse. I mention the mouse just in case it makes a difference, but
have no desire to use it. My mythtv is new hardware running mythbuntu
I configured the device using the dpkg-reconfigure lirc. Choosing the linux
input layer (/dev/input/eventX)
option and then selecting event2. Right now I am seeing double key hits for
every key pressed. Pressing the down arrow skips the next item. I have
added an ignore = true for my device in
/usr/share/hal/fdi/preprobe/20thirdparty/lirc.fdi. I followed the
instructions on http://www.lirc.org/html/devinput.html. I have verified
that lshal shows the ignore has been set. irw only shows one keycode per
key. At least for the down, up, left, right and enter. I thought I had it
fixed early by removing the -r option needed for Hulu. But it reverted back
to the same double key hit in mythtv.
I also have a problem with some of the other keys putting out two or three
keycodes when pressed. But I think that is a different configuration issue.
