Well I now have Back, Pause, Info, Commercial skip forwards/back, and
Menu working, plus the numeric digits. Along with the keys that
already worked, that covers almost all my usage :)

To me that seems the logical place to fix the problem - it doesn't
seem to make sense to me capturing IR buttons and then sending
keycodes through into a system that's going to filter most of them !
Presumably (other than using LIRC) there's no way for Myth to access
the codes before they get filtered ?
In the meantime, I guess the easiest thing to do is find the header
file where all the keycodes are defined, pick a bunch of codes
(probably all those >=128) and modify my IR code table to use those.
Then back to figuring out what is what in the very long list of Myth
