I /know/ what codes the Harmony sends, because I can set them up via the Logitek
website when I program the device. Unfortunately, the set of codes I have access
to isn't big enough. That's why I asked if there was a more suitable device I
could make the Harmmony pretend to be.
I also tried 0.24.1-78, and it runs like a dog. Menus take forever to display,
and, as you noted, some of the defaults are... not what I would have expected.
Reverted back to 0.24.1-77 to retain WAF.
