How do your scripts work?    Is MouseRemoteFC.pl used something like the
"irxevent &" line I have in /etc/X11/Session/fluxbox  ?

If I run that script from the command prompt, I do get output when I press
buttons on the remote, like:
byte = 13 code = 16
byte = 14 code = 16
byte = 15 code = 16
byte = 17 code = 16

But what I don't get is how I would get the remote codes to interact with
MythTV?    I'm sure I'm missing something simple...
