Nope, it's actually the irtrans display. You need to download the  
modified lcdproc files from here:

Also, the HD-160 has a built-in irreceiver which I find much better  
than the PVR-350 ir receiver I was using. You can get their irserver  
software from the same place.

It took me a little while to figure out how it all works together so  
if you need any more pointers, feel free to ask.
