Aye, I have a Logitech RF keyboard (3 or 4 actually) and I keep it 
behind the TV for whenever I need it. Like during reboots or LIRC 
troubleshooting, etc. But it just doesn't look appealing sitting on my 
couch and its cumbersome to use. Plus teaching my girlfriend that "[" is 
volume down and "]" is volume up can be frustrating. And even though she 
would eventually learn every time company comes over they'd be lost.

I may be looking at the IR Adesso's so I can program the Harmony. 
However, I'd like to just figure out a way for the Harmony to emulate an 
IR keyboard and still use the SteamZap receiver. Not really sure that is 
possible, unless I can find an lircd.conf file that someone generated 
with their IR keyboard.
