Fair enough, but as I understand it, the RC5 protocol is quite common,
if so, how can 7 out of 9 (including Hauppauge's own remote) not work?
This is for a variety of devices, DVD player, 2 x TV, VCR, 2 x digital
STB, HiFi and a videophone. That strikes me a bit strange?

Well, when using the remote with Mythfrontend, it wouldn't work unless I
ran irxevent and run mythfrontend in the same terminal window - running
irxevent and mythfrontend in a different terminal window wouldn't work.
Thanks very much for your help
