Duh, dawn breaks over Marblehead. Yes, that makes sense. I configure the
remote to work (as it does now) and there is logic in MythTV as to which
tuner is active with the foreground and acts on the commands. I was just
having a block on the fact that the software was handling the remote not
hardware on the tuner. I should have known that after all the work to
generate lirc.conf and lircrc last week.
