Cool tip, I just wanted to heed a warning though - I have an infared keyboard 
and a learning remote. and tried this myself some moths ago with no luck. 
Depending on the keyboard model and the remote model, I suspect the remote 
model may not be able to read the codes.

Of course if you buy the exact same models as John did you obviously wouldn't 
have an issue :)
