Now, that I've already spent the money on this StreamZap I'm beginning 
to think I went about this all the wrong way. I should have just bought 
an IR keyboard to begin with. Wouldn't even need to mess with LIRC then. 

May be going back to Fry's to see if they will let me return that 
StreamZap and get an IR keyboard. Keyboard should communicate with an IR 
receiver that converts everything to PS/2. Harmony should learn those 
codes, and myth will think I'm just using a keyboard. Bah, why didn't I 
think of all that last night. :-/
