 From some googling it appears that this is just a normal keyboard but 
correct me if I'm wrong. You would not use lirc for that but you would 
plug in its receiver and it would appear in Linux as a regular USB keyboard.

I also have this case and used the remote for a while but could not get 
the directional buttons (for navigating DVD menu's etc.) working so I 
used the bundled Hauppauge remote that came with my PVR-350 instead. But 
if you want to try this remote see this thread on venky.ws:


and also search those forums.
