That seems to be the one I have working and yes, the remote does some
things but misses others. The pointer to the pvr-150 in the previous
thread reply seems to have a more complete .lircrc for it. Really,
what I was looking for was a page that listed the commands to the
programs that I then should link the remote buttons to. I have all
the buttons mapped but don't know what to link them to to make it
