I got around the limit on Hauppauge buttons by adding additional  
mythtv devices to my PVR activity. There are at least three different  
kinds of Hauppauge remote (from an IR-code perspective) so by  
assigning different profiles to each extra myth device and then  
combining them as passthroughs to the "master" myth activity you have  
triple the number of buttons/codes available for the harmony remote.  
You have to experiment to find out which profile corresponds to which  
harmony but eventually I was able to assign a task every button on  
the Harmony including the eight soft buttons which I use for menu  
jump points.
