I did that and am very happy with the results. I think I paid $20 for
an OFA 8811 at Walmart. Many bonuses to the JP1 route, number 1 being
price, but up there is that if the batteries die on the thing and it
loses it's memory, it's a piece of cake to hook it back to computer and
download all the memory back into it.
To get mine working with LIRC, I had to result to learning the Hauppage
Remote and using a file for the Hauppage, but on the list is to make a
LIRC file that uses all the buttons on the 8811. I tried once using the
files on the hifiremote board, but couldn't get it to work.
I'm sure I'm not using 50% of the capacity of this $20 remote.
