It's true the USB-UIRT remote does receive codes from
every remote I've ever used with it.  I think I
remember testing my MCE remote receiver using IRW and
found it to receive codes from some non-MCE remotes in
my remote graveyard.  I'll test again and report back.

I have the 3rd remote here:
(Version 2, Model 1039)

I pretty much followed that guide, with a few extra
visits to the LIRC site.  I remember I wrote a little
script to cycle through channel changing codes on my
DCT6200 STB.  I can't remember if I downloaded the
codes from the LIRC site or recorded them myself using
the original STB remote.  Once I had the correct
codes, I found a channel changing script online that
required very few changes to work perfectly with
mythy.  I also look at my scripts tonight and report
back to the list.
