[mythtv-users] Remote advice

I don't know about the URC-8017, but I'm using an
URC-6131 with my MythTV machine, on the RC-5 receiver
of my Hauppauge PVR-250.  I used the keymover function
(992) to assign VCR code 0081 (base RC-5) to the PVR

On my remote, I use the key combination 994 to program
individual keys.

Rather than copy/paste my information, check out my
website at http://www.vulturesnest.net, and look at
the "URC-6131 With Hauppauge IR Receiver" page.

I'm a little confused though as to what your problem
is (maybe I'm not reading your e-mail correctly).  Is
keymover not working?  Do you not know how to program
EFCs?  Or are you looking for a table of EFCs for a
particular device?  If so, which device?
