It turns out that besides the DVR 1 and DVR 2 settings, out of the  
box the Tivo remote is in an undocumented "DVR 0" mode.  The lircrc  
file I was using was expecting the remote to be programmed for DVR 1  
or 2.  It's something I had to do anyway to use it with 2 devices,  
but I didn't know not doing so right away would cause the trouble  
that it did.
