The Hauppauge I2C receivers (the ones that plug directly into the 
capture card--I don't know about the MCE USB ones you can get with the 
PVR-150's) only accept RC5 remote commands.  If your remote uses any 
other command set, you can't use the Hauppauge receiver.  So, you can 
either a) get a new RC5 universal remote or b) build a homebrew serial 
receiver and use it with any remote you want.
