... or download the full RC-5 config file from the LIRC site 
(http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/rc-5/RC-5) and install it.  As long as 
your remote is sending valid RC-5 codes they should be recognized using this 
config.  Press all the buttons and copy only the codes that the remote sends 
to a new config file.  Then rename the key names to something you will 
recognize (1, 2, up, down, etc.).
