Yea I got this working.  My problem was when Recording with irrecord, the
codes for each press was different, ie. 0x0A01, 0x0A07, 0x0B01, etc., but
the bindings for the +,-,>>,<< when I ran irw picked up the same signal, so
0x0A01 and 0A07 both picked up whatever was bound to 01 (this isn't exact I
can't remember), so I could only do 3 keybindings per UID (menu+play for 6
seconds), although 3x256 is still plenty.

Yea, but I hope the one thing is the first time only.  The first time I went
into the Programing GUIde, took like 5 minutes or  more to come up, still
takes awhile, like 30 seconds to 1 minute to come up, annoying.
