[mythtv-users] IR receiver that only does RC-5

I was having problems with my irman and my wireless
keyboard a long time ago, but now that I think a bit
more about it, I think that was before I was using
RC-5 for the remote.  At that time, I was
experimenting with different devices, and I think I
settled on the TiVo codes in my remote (a URC-6131,
which has them).

Whenever I did something on the remote (maybe it was
entering a digit, I don't remember), it seemed that
the keyboard would interpret that as a mute command
(the "|" key), and MythTV would mute.

Anyway, out of desperation, I setup the irman again
over the weekend, and it seems to be working fine with
my remote using RC-5 (so, a new lircd.conf file, but
.lircrc is still the same).

Here's to keeping my fingers crossed...
