Can you publish the lircrc codes that link to the keyboard bindings please?

Note that here in NZ, the retail MCE remote that comes with the Hauppagge
cards is a bit different to most other countries. Also, the 'Enter' and
'Cancel' keys don't appear on most pvr150 remotes so the lircd file for
the mce2 driver presumably has a couple of extra extries as well to the
one on the lirc website.
