Ahh, so it could be that all Foxtel STB's use the one type of remote? 

The STB I have is a Pace STB-120 (IIRC).

Would you mind sending me the config you mentioned (and an explanation of
what it took to get this working on your machine)?

This is unrelated but I'm currently having all sorts of problems with lircd.

Talk about frustrating.
