[mythtv-users] Hauppauge Remote Also Controls My TV

get an ir blaster like the one from here http://www.irblaster.info or 
make one yourself with radio shack parts

stick it on top of your TV IR Input and then put a piece of tape over it 
to prevent signals from the hauppauge remote from getting in there.

Now, change your lirc configuration such that some button you don't use 
on your hauppauge remote sends the power command to the ir blaster 
located behind the tape on your tv.

Maybe this is overkill, but I think it would work nicely
