Your setup probably has little to do with the Tivo remote and more to do 
with the IR Reciever.  You say you bought a receiver, but not what kind 
of reciever.  Many of the commercial recievers are based on the libirman 
package.  I don't think any of the lirc packages come built with this 

Your best bet is probably to build lirc from scracth with all the 
appropriate settings for you IR Reciever.  The Myth Documentation has 
some pretty good overview instructions for building lirc.
