If you're using a hauppauge pvr ir receiver, you need to find a remote
profile that uses rc5.  If you can figure out what remote Jarod's
Universal remote guide is using (it's labeled as 0081 VCR for Radio
Shack and OFA remotes, which is a Phillips/Magnavox VCR, I think) you
could follow most of his guide (i.e. the lirc stuff) to get it
