Thanks for the reply,

I came to the same conclusion.  I picked a remote I had left over from a 
dead DVD player.  All is working but I have that one question of where 
do I put the command "lircd -H udp -d 5000" that starts lirc to play 
with my HD HomeRun?  I guess I could experiment but I wonder where the 
preferred spot is?  Documentation online looks way too complex and I 
suspect it is not up to date with my mythbuntu 8.04 system.
