The Hauppauge remotes use RC-5 (a common signalling protocol). If your
TV also does, there is the remote possibility it may work. However,
I'm guessing you've already tried without success?

If it didn't work immediately, I'm pretty sure there's no way you'll
be able to achieve what you want. The remote is not a learning remote,
and I know my Sony TV (the volume of which can be controlled/muted
using my Sky+ remote using) is uses a different signalling protocol
(the SPACE_ENC protocol per my LIRC config) to control it.
