  That is the same product id as  my Onebox. I had to add that
deviceid and then only made a few customizations to the code to support it.
I'd bet money that it would work pretty much "out of the box" with 
my customized one. Looks like I will be ordering one after all :)

 Then it's a simple matter of insmod x10rf_remote.o After that
every button press just appears as a keypress without any lirc or other
application needed. Basically the remote becomes a wireless USB keyboard.

 I've been thinking of making the Remote buttons to Keyboard map
a config file rather than statically placed in the module. Maybe I'll
at adding that now just in case anyone is interested.
