heh, and i'm cheap, so i probably wouldn't pay $40 for one of these :P 
hehe ... tho', i apparently would pay about $90 for a Kameleon :P ...

i didn't even think of looking for a MCE remote code!  i've wanted to do 
some customization of the remote via JP1 anyway, so when i found 
someone's package for making a similar remote work w/ myth, i used that 
as a basis and the Kameleon's PVR device (it was unused on my remote and 
had the most available buttons) ... so, it's 100% customized exactly how 
i want instead of dealing with a predefined code ... i even added a few 
Shift+[key] so i can make << and >> be multi-functional :)
